Board of Trustees

The DC Preservation League Board of Trustees is comprised of up to 20 individuals who have expertise in the fields of preservation, architecture, history, development, community activism, government affairs, law, finance, fundraising, public relations or related fields. It is a working Board that, in addition to its management and fiscal responsibilities, carries out, through its committee structure, much of the ongoing work of the organization.

The Board is headed by a slate of officers — President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer — that is elected annually by the full Board.
