Insuring Historic Properties in an Increasingly Challenging Marketplace—What You Need to Know

Forum Webinar

Challenges associated with insuring both commercial and residential historic properties has become increasingly more difficult—with fewer and fewer companies willing to insure historic properties and soaring premiums, historic property owners are often at a disadvantage.

Join the National Trust’s Government Relations and Policy team as we host a webinar with key leaders from the insurance, non-profit, and state historic preservation regulatory sectors about what you need to know about the state of the insurance industry today, what is driving up costs, and what you may be able to do about it.

National Trust Forum members are eligible to receive a free consultation from National Trust Insurance Services, should they be in attendance.

Speakers: Meghan Elliott, Principal, Jillpine, Kevin Sullivan, Vice President & Client Executive, National Trust Insurance Services, LLC, Stephanie Cherry-Farmer, Historic Preservation Division, Georgia Department of Community Affairs

Monuments & Justice: Emmett Till and Mamie Till-Mobley National Monument

AACHAF Conversation Series

Last year, the African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund gathered with donors, activists, experts, and partners for the 2023 Cultural Preservation Leadership Summit held at the Ford Foundation's Center for Social Justice in New York City. Throughout 2024 we will be rebroadcasting those conversations for the public.

Monuments & Justice

The work to permanently protect, preserve, manage, and interpret Chicago’s Roberts Temple Church of God in Christ and Mississippi’s Graball Landing and Tallahatchie Courthouse as part of the new Emmett Till and Mamie Till-Mobley National Monument has profound meaning. Each heritage asset tells stories of racial violence, human worth, dignity, fairness under the law, grief, tragedy, and women-led activism. In a conversation led by renowned poet, scholar, and President of the Mellon Foundation, Dr. Elizabeth Alexander, we will explore the architecture of monument-making, the need for ethnic and cultural representation, and the role of historic preservation in fostering healing from racial trauma.

Speakers: Moderator: Dr. Elizabeth Alexander, President, Mellon Foundation; Panelists: Dr. Marvel Parker, Executive Director, Emmett Till and Mamie Till-Mobley Institute, Roberts Temple Church of God in Christ, Chicago, Illinois; Tiffany Tolbert, Senior Director of Preservation, African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund; Patrick Weems, Executive Director, Emmett Till Interpretative Center, Tallahatchie Courthouse, Sumner, Mississipppi; Dr. Justin Hopkins, Psychologist, Hopkins Behavioral Health, Washington, D.C.
