Part 2: Volunteer Management for Historic Preservation Surveys and Advocacy

Volunteers play a critical role in local historic resource surveys and preservation advocacy efforts. They frequently determine whether or not a grant-funded survey makes financial sense for a local government. For local nonprofit organizations, volunteers also form the backbone of a strong preservation outreach and advocacy effort. This short webinar will gather together an expert panel of speakers from nonprofits, local government, state government and consulting. Learn how preservation can efficiently manage and leverage the power of volunteer-driven efforts - whether in advocacy or local historic resource planning. This webinar will be beneficial to local planners, advocates, consultants, and anyone interested in utilizing volunteers to make long-yearned-for preservation projects financially feasible.
