OverviewGrantsResourcesLouisiana CLGsTraining
Every year, the Louisiana Division of Historic Preservation sponsors training opportunities for historic district commissioners. In the past, these have included sessions at the Louisiana Trust Conference, CAMP (Commission Assistance and Mentoring Program) put on by the National Alliance of Preservation Commissions, and other trainings in North and South Louisiana utilizing local and national experts.

According to the Louisiana CLG guidelines, commission members are required to attend at least one of these training sessions per year pertaining to the work and functions of the commission or to historic preservation. Such meetings may include those sponsored by the Louisiana Division of Historic Preservation, the National Trust for Historic Preservation, Louisiana Trust, or a local preservation organization. 


FY 2015-2016 Historic District Commission Trainings Offered by the
Louisiana Division of Historic Preservation 



What is CAMP?

The Commission Assistance and Mentoring Program (CAMP) is the signature training offered by National Alliance of Preservation Commissions.  CAMP is led by qualified preservation professionals from around the country in support of local preservation commissions and NAPC's mission to "build strong local preservation programs through education, advocacy, and training."

The goal of CAMP is to provide high-quality, engaging and informative training to preservation related boards and commissions of all types through presentations, hands-on exercises, group discussions and networking (mentoring) opportunities via live training.  Trainers include commissioners, local, state and national staff members, attorneys and commission partners.


Who Attends CAMP?

CAMP is designed to provide continuing education and support to local design review commissions and Main Street organizations, their staff and partners, such as neighborhood organizations, local and statewide non-profits, community leaders and public officials.

Typically the Louisiana Division of Historic Preservation hosts two CAMPs in late winter or early spring.  In response to requests from you, our constituents, we are offering a summer CAMP in 2015.
