Stephanie Meeks to Step Down from the National Trust for Historic Preservation
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -
Contributed By: National Trust for Historic Preservation

Stephanie Meeks is stepping down as president and CEO of the D.C.-based National Trust for Historic Preservation at the end of the year. Meeks is the eighth president and first woman to serve as chief executive officer of the National Trust and has been in her role since 2010. She oversaw the largest fundraising campaign in the history of the organization, raising $305 million to surpass the organization's goal by $105 million.

“It has been a privilege to lead an incredible organization of talented and committed individuals dedicated to preserving and honoring the places that tell our full American story,” Meeks said in a statement. “As I reflect on the results we have achieved together, I am deeply moved and grateful for the opportunity to contribute to an organization whose important work will continue to shape the cultural landscape of our nation.”

The National Trust is the leading nonprofit for the preservation of the most historic places in America. Its portfolio includes 27 sites, including Abraham Lincoln's cottage, Decatur House and the Woodrow Wilson House in the District, Woodlawn Plantation and Pope-Leighey House in the Alexandria section of Fairfax County and Oatlands in Leesburg. Under Meeks's leadership, the National Trust initiated an effort to assist in the reuse of historic buildings to meet modern need. The National Trust added a new historic site in Southern California, Thornton Gardens, during Meeks's tenure.

The search for Meeks's successor begins immediately. The effort will be led by Jay Clemens, the vice chairman of the Board of Trustees, along with four other board members. The search committee will work with Howe-Lewis International, a New York-based executive search firm.
