Newfoundland Historic Trust Seeks Members, Board of Directors

The Newfoundland Historic Trust invites nominations to fill vacancies on its Board of Directors. Prospective candidates would have knowledge and experience dealing with issues pertaining to built heritage preservation, and would be interested in playing an advocacy role within the province of Newfoundland & Labrador.

The NHT is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the built heritage of our province since 1966. Key activities of the NHT include the annual Southcott Awards for Built Heritage Preservation, and the operation of a provincial historic site called the Newman Wine Vaults, located at Springdale and Water Streets in St. John’s.

The Board of Directors are unpaid volunteers, committed to the Trust’s mandate of preservation. The Board usually holds in-person meetings one evening per month. Teleconference attendance can be arranged for prospective members located elsewhere in the province. The NHT will hold an election of officers at the upcoming Annual General Meeting at the end of November.

If you are interested in joining this committee, please submit your resume by 4:30 pm, Friday, October 24th, 2008 for consideration:
