President-elect, Historic Preservation Alliance of Arkansas

hpaaAt the February Board meeting of the Historic Preservation Alliance of Arkansas, I was voted in as President-elect of the organization. The HPAA is the only statewide nonprofit organization focused on preserving Arkansas’s architectural and cultural resources. Founded in 1981, the Alliance’s mission is to educate, advocate and assist preservation efforts across the state. Through educational programs centered on architectural heritage, advocating for preservation legislation in the halls of the State Capitol and at the local level, and assisting owners of historic properties with the means and expertise to preserve and restore historic structures, the Alliance has been a statewide voice for preservation in Arkansas for three decades.

I have served on the HPAA Board for the last three years and I am very proud of the work that we do…hosting the Arkansas Preservation Conference, the Arkansas Preservation Awards, the traveling Preservation Rambles, and the list of Arkansas’s Most Endangered Places…along with our advocacy efforts with the legislature and the media–all make the Historic Preservation Alliance of Arkansas an important player in public policy in Arkansas. I look forward to 2014 when I will be supporting HPAA President Courtney Crouch with his agenda…and 2015, when I will be the President of the organization.

Wish me luck…
