First, join National Trust Chief Preservation Officer Katherine Malone-France for a preview of the day’s events! Hear tips on how to maximize your conference experience as well as many ways to engage with the National Trust on federal advocacy, national grants, and American’s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places.
Next, enjoy the Opening Plenary to hear dynamic speakers inspire your own preservation efforts as they share how they are turning their visions into reality. Hear Mayor Daniella Levine Cava, the first female mayor of Miami Dade County, describe her administration’s efforts to help the communities become more climate resilient, to create more affordable housing amid immense development, and support small business development. Paul Edmondson, National Trust President and CEO, will share an update on the organization’s efforts to build a more sustainable, inclusive, and equitable future as part of the broader national impact agenda, Leading the Change Together.
The convening will also serve as the National Trust’s annual membership meeting, led by Board Chair Jay Clemens, for the purpose of electing new members of our Board of Trustees (visit https://savingplaces.org/board-of-trustees to review this year’s slate of nominees).
