Preservation Utah

08 February 2019

Want to be a leader in Utah's historic preservation movement and make a different in communities throughout the state? Preservation Utah (previously known as Utah Heritage Foundation) continually seeks nominations to the Board of Trustees, taking application year round for consideration. Our governing board sets the organization's program, budget, and policies, but importantly guides our preservation strategy on key preservation issues. Expectations of trustees are to develop and share your personal story, govern responsibly, participate on a committee, make an annual gift, and fill at table at one of the two fundraising events. Recommended for all trustees are to contribute expertise, give or find additional financial support, make connections for us, attend other Preservation Utah functions, and fulfill the need for in-kind donations.
