Member Spotlight

Richard Laub, leading a study abroad program

The many facets of preservation mean that preservationists follow many different career paths- they may be planners, craftsmen, activists, writers or academics. In his many years in the field, Richard Laub has worn all these hats and more. In his current position as Director of the Master of Preservation program at Georgia State, Richard is using his diverse experiences to educate new generations of preservationists.

Richard has been a member of the Georgia Trust for many years, and currently serves as Chairman of the awards committee. This committee has been meeting regularly to choose the 2010 Preservation Awards which will be presented on April the 9th, 2010 at the Desoto Theatre in Rome, Georgia. Together, Richard and his fellow awards committee members work to help insure that the people and projects the Trust recognizes are held to the highest standard. His efforts have helped to make the Trust's Preservation Awards a highly competitive honor- and with his help, the Trust has made sure that worthy sites throughout the state receive the recognition they deserve.

All of us at the Trust are grateful to Richard for allowing us to benefit from his incredible pool of experience and knowledge, and for his many years of service.

Join the Trust for our Spring Ramble and Annual Meeting in Rome, Georgia April 9 through the 11th!
