Preservation Greensboro’s 54th Annual Meeting
February 12 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm
This meeting serves as Preservation Greensboro’s annual General Membership Meeting that will include election of board and presentation of Preservation Awards. In addition to awards and a community update by our executive director Benjamin Briggs, attendees will learn more about a special new initiative of the organization.
Preservation Greensboro seeks to address community unemployment challenges by promoting specialized skills and traditional trades. This initiative mirrors Michigan’s Living Trades Academy, a program to develop a skilled workforce by training unemployed and under-employed workers in historic preservation trades such as plaster repair, window restoration, and masonry. The successful program was developed by Nancy Finegood, our featured Annual Meeting speaker. Thanks to a grant from the Peter H. Brink Leadership Fund at the National Trust for Historic Preservation, Finegood will share best practices from her experience as program administrator, as well as opportunities observed during three-days of convening with Greensboro stakeholders. Join us to learn more about the Living Trades Program, and get inspired to help us address some of our community challenges.
