ACHP Meets in D.C.
The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation met for its summer business meeting July 15 in Washington, DC in the Russell Senate Office Building. Charleston, South Carolina, Mayor Joseph P. Riley Jr. was sworn in as the newest member of the ACHP, appointed by President Obama to represent the country’s mayors on the council.
ACHP members also heard a presentation from Vincent L. Michael, Ph.D., a global preservationist and leader in the preservation field. Members discussed how the ACHP can take a leadership role in developing recommendations for future preservation policy in the context of the National Historic Preservation Act and the National Historic Preservation Program.
Members also discussed outreach to youth, Asian Americans, Latinos, and others in the ongoing mission to involve more people in preservation. ACHP members reviewed and adopted recommendations that support engaging Asian American and Pacific Islander communities in historic preservation. These follow-up actions complement work being done by preservation partners.
Members of the Suquamish Tribe’s Youth Council attended the meeting and offered a traditional song in thanks for the ACHP's support.
