A Message from from the Board Chair
I am excited to announce that Preservation Action has appointed Darlene R. Taylor as our next President! Darlene’s first day is Tuesday, October 1. She is looking forward to working with each of you!
With a career in public service, global communications at Fortune 100 corporations, and as a principal in her consulting firm, Darlene brings valuable skills and expertise to PA. In senior roles as a congressional aide and in municipal government, she advised elected officials and engaged constituent groups on national public policy issues as well as managed legislative and communications staff. She has served on a number of boards and commissions where she has been instrumental in outreach, public awareness, and relationship building to support fundraising and programming initiatives. She joins a very talented and capable staff, and we look forward to PA’s continued growth and success under her leadership.
Welcome to Preservation Action, Darlene!
I’m excited about this opportunity to work with the Preservation Action Board of Directors, the PA staff, and YOU, our members, and other grassroots preservationists around the country.
I grew up in Washington, DC, and I know from personal experience that our buildings and neighborhoods hold stories of America’s history…as they do in your cities and towns. In my public and private sector career and volunteer service, I have been committed to protecting and preserving historic buildings, lands, and works of art.
We all have a role in historic preservation and I look forward to working with Congress and the Administration to promote sound preservation policy and helping to expand the public’s exposure and involvement in my new position.
