Preservation Greensboro’s Annual Meeting
September 14 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Though we held our most recent Annual Meeting last February, this meeting serves as Preservation Greensboro’s abridged annual General Membership Meeting that will align to the organization’s new bylaws and the fiscal year passed May 10th, 2022. The new bylaws call for our annual meeting to be held in September or October of each year. In addition to the election of members to the Board of Directors and a community update, attendees will learn more about ongoing new initiatives of the organization.
Our special guest speaker is Dr. Darin Waters, North Carolina’s Deputy Secretary for the Office of Archives and History, where he oversees the operations of the divisions of State History and Maritime Museums, State Historic Sites and Properties, Archives and Records, Historical Resources (including the State Historic Preservation Office, Office of Historical Research, and the Office of State Archaeology), and commissions (including Roanoke Island Festival Park and Tryon Palace), and Education and Outreach. He is also a member of the African American Heritage Commission, the secretary of the North Carolina Historical Commission, and is a member of the Board of Directors of Preservation North Carolina.
Originally from Asheville, Dr. Waters was most recently an Associate Professor of History at UNC Asheville and the Executive Director of UNCA’s Office of Community Engagement. He previously held other teachings, research, and community engagement positions at UNCA, UNC-Chapel Hill, and North Carolina State University. Early in his career, he was an Adult Probation Parole Officer with the Department of Public Safety. Waters received a B.S. in Political Science and Government from Liberty University, a master’s in History from North Carolina State University, and a Ph.D. in History from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Due to uncertainties related to COVID, this event will be held as a reception on the evening of Wednesday, September 14th, 2022, in the Blandwood Carriage House. This is a ticketed event.
