Now Recruiting: Maryland Preservation Policy Workgroup
08/07/2017 By Elly Colmers Cowan
Preservation Maryland is currently laying the groundwork to convene a workgroup of history, preservation, economic development, and tourism organizations to focus on public policy and funding sources to support Maryland’s historical and cultural resources. We’re recruiting organizations now for a kick-off in fall of 2017.
The goal of this new workgroup is to expand and broaden the preservation community’s voice in Annapolis and to help increase funding and support for the diverse organizations engaged in preservation activities.
SEEKING A BROAD COALITION
Preservation Maryland is seeking representation from approximately ten organizations that may or may not consider themselves preservation organizations but that utilize historic places to advance their cause or mission.
Organizations with a focus in the following areas are strongly encouraged to apply:
economic development and revitalization
arts and entertainment
history and museums
youth education and apprenticeships
