Member partners are an important part of our organization. With our mission on the state level, local partners are our eyes and ears. In other words, local partners are essential to keeping us informed of issues and difficulties in their areas. Conversely, we can help bring partners together to benefit from one another’s expertise and experiences – as well as the experts we bring to the state. Our position as the state partner of the National Trust for Historic Preservation also helps us build awareness of issues impacting historic preservation nationwide. Attendance at national meetings allows us to obtain new information to share with our local partners.
