We are pleased to announce our chapter's collaboration with the Association for Preservation Technology International (APTI) to facilitate knowledge sharing and resources between chapters and APTI. With this partnership, this website will ultimately be used as a tool to streamline sharing industry and APTI news and events.

APT WGLC will continue to develop and improve this site so it can be as useful as possible to our members and friends. Please stand-by as we continue to import information, including photos from past events, and develop our members-only access.

    Please join APT WGLC in conducting a limited condition assessment of the exterior envelope of the Old Nichols Library on Saturday June 24th from 9:00 am until 12:00 pm. The building is currently in the process of Landmarks review by the Village of Naperville, yet it is also currently being threatened with demolition by a local developer. Please consider giving back to the community and use your preservation talents to help this building in need. Light refreshments will be provided. 

    You can register to participate in the field assessment, register to help the team prepare the deliverable (from home) or both!

    Chicago‚Äôs suburbs have a wealth of early settlement buildings which used found materials for their construction.  APT WGLC has partnered with the Elgin History Museum and the Preservation Partners of the Fox Valley to feature some early regional construction techniques at this interactive event.

    We hope to see you there, rain or shine!
