In April 2007, at Kykuit Historic House Museum in New York area, USA, the National Trust for Historic Preservation in partnership with the American Association for State and Local History, the American Architectural Foundation, and the American Association of Museums, invited 30 historic site professionals to a three-day conference to discuss issues related to the financial sustainability of historic sites.

The purpose of this think-tank meeting, funded in part by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund with support from the National Endowment for the Arts, was to initiate a national discussion and assessment of museum professional practices and funding sources that may be negatively impacting creativity and financial sustainability. As a result of the conference each of the partnering organisations will be publishing articles and hosting sessions at professional meetings to generate a more national conversation about these issues.
