Originally founded as the APT New York Chapter in the mid-1980s, the organization was restructured in 2003 as the APT Northeast Chapter encompassing New England, New York State, and northern New Jersey. At present we have approximately over 110 members.

As a chapter, we conduct workshops, co-sponsor events with local and statewide preservation organizations, and sponsor symposia including our annual meeting. We support preservation students by offering scholarships and outreach for student chapters.

We invite you to look around our website to learn more about our organization.
