Guidelines for Selecting New AG Members


An HRC Advisory Group appointment is more than the usual board position. Persons selected to this group will automatically become chair in a specified period of time (maybe less). Therefore, it is especially desirable that appointees be already recognized as effective leaders in preservation architecture and be committed to a five-year term of activities on the Committee.

Requirements for Consideration

  • Registered architect in good standing with registration boards and the American Institute of Architects.
  • Commitment of a five-year term and the full realm of activities and responsibilities associated with that appointment.
  • Primary Importance for Selection
  • Is a historical architect actively involved in the preservation of historic buildings.
  • Has held a position of upper level management (i.e. supervised personnel, prepared and managed budgets, made project decisions and set schedules.)
  • Has demonstrated sustained, effective leadership in both professional practice and community service.

Secondary Importance for Selection

  • Appointment would promote a balance in geographic representation.
  • Appointment would provide for representation of both genders.
  • Appointment would broaden racial participation.
  • Appointment would broaden the professional perspective.

Other Considerations

  • Has served on a committee, assisted with a conference, or performed well in some other service to the Historic Resources Committee.
  • Has strong professional experience.
  • Has good communication skills.
  • Has experience with other preservation groups.
  • Has lobbying experience on behalf of preservation.
  • Has experience in a public or private preservation incentive program.
  • Has juried preservation projects.
  • Has made public presentations regarding preservation.
  • Has professional preservation experience on a national basis.
  • Has served as a reader for preservation grant program.
