Preservation Maryland is currently laying the groundwork to convene a workgroup of history, preservation, economic development, and tourism organizations to focus on public policy and funding sources to support Maryland’s historical and cultural resources. We’re recruiting organizations now for a kick-off in fall of 2017.

The goal of this new workgroup is to expand and broaden the preservation community’s voice in Annapolis and to help increase funding and support for the diverse organizations engaged in preservation activities.


Preservation Maryland is seeking representation from approximately ten organizations that may or may not consider themselves preservation organizations but that utilize historic places to advance their cause or mission.

Organizations with a focus in the following areas are strongly encouraged to apply:

  • economic development and revitalization
  • arts and entertainment
  • community development
  • heritage tourism
  • history and museums
  • cultural tourism
  • youth education and apprenticeships
  • urban planning
  • environmental preservation


If your organization would like to be a part of this new endeavor, please complete this simple six question form and you will be contacted by Preservation Maryland staff. The form asks for organizational information and background, contact person, email address, and number of members/supporters. If you have any questions, please contact Elly Cowan, Director of Engagement, at
