At the 2021 Annual Meeting of the National Preservation Partners Network, Preservation Maryland’s President and CEO, Nicholas Redding, was formally elected chair of the national organization.

The National Preservation Partners Network, an organization comprised of nearly 100 national, statewide, local and regional preservation organizations around the country, advances the growth and effectiveness of the organized preservation movement through communication, education, training, and a common advocacy agenda.

Redding, who has served as Vice-Chair of the Network’s Board since its formal founding in 2016, follows Bonnie McDonald, the President and CEO of Landmarks Illinois, who served as chair of the network over the past two years. Redding’s service as Chair will not alter his role at Preservation Maryland — as the Chair role of the Network is purely voluntary.

Redding, who was recently recognized by the Maryland Daily Record as one of the Most Influential Marylanders, takes over the reins of the Network at a time of tremendous growth. With a full-time program director and rapidly expanding membership, the Network is poised to expand and build the capacity of the preservation movement at critical moment. From affordable housing to historic trades, the Network provides a platform for conversations, information sharing and national coordination.
