Organizational Membership

Organizational Members provide essential guidance to the Alliance's Board of Directors and staff regarding important local historic preservation issues. The Alliance, in turn, provides regular advocacy assistance to our Organizational Members. Organizations that are members of the Alliance appoint two delegates to the corporation to represent their organization and vote on matters pertaining to the Alliance's governance at our Annual Meeting, which is held every October. The Alliance promotes the events and activities sponsored by our Organizational Members and organizational delegates are invited to participate in Alliance programs. The Alliance commonly works together on joint programming with our Organizational Members.

Organizational Membership to the Alliance is by invitation only. We welcome inquiries from organizations that share the Alliance's vision to improve tomorrow's built heritage.

If your organization would like to work with the Alliance, please contact us anytime at 617-367-2458.
