- Lydia Kachadoorian; Federal Emergency Management Agency
- Robert Goodby, PhD; Monadnock Archaeological Consulting, LLC
- Maureen Beauregard; Families in Transition
- Sarah Jordan; White Mountain National Forest
- Sean T. James and Josif Bicja; Hoyle, Tanner & Associates

There will also be a panel discussion about the history of preservation in New Hampshire, and a keynote address by Charlene Dwin Vaughn, assistant director at the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation.
People interested in learning more about historic preservation success stories in New Hampshire, including members of historic commissions, environmental and engineering firms, federal and state agencies, and cultural resource consultants are invited to attend.
