In this month’s Member Spotlight, we are thrilled to focus on Georgia Trust Trustee and avid preservationist, Chris Lambert of Madison, Georgia.
Chris has been involved in the Georgia Trust since soon after the Trust’s creation when she and her husband Roy generously hosted a dinner for the Trust at their home. The couple went on to become loyal members with Roy serving on the Board of Trustees from 1981 to 1988 and as President in1984 and 1985. Chris has been a Georgia Trust Trustee since 2010.
In addition to her work on the Trust’s board, she is also heavily involved in Madison where she serves on various committees with the Madison Morgan Cultural Center and Chamber of Commerce. She is also a board member of Madison Green Space Commission, The Morgan County Foundation for Excellence in Public Education and The Morgan Fund Advisory Board for the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta.
Chris became interested in historic preservation after witnessing the loss of significant resources in Madison. She believes that it, "is important to take note of your surroundings and the things that bring you joy. Don’t take for granted that they will always be there. Be willing to support efforts to preserve irreplaceable treasures in your environment."
The Georgia Trust is extremely grateful to have dedicated board members like Chris. We look forward to working with her in protecting and preservating Georgia's historic treasures.
