Manager of Preservation and Outreach

Founded in 1982, Friends of the Upper East Side Historic Districts is one of New York’s most effective preservation advocacy organizations and a growing influence on issues related to planning and zoning reform. We pursue our mission to preserve and celebrate the architectural legacy, livability, and sense of place of the Upper East Side through a program of rigorous advocacy as well as educational programming for adults and children. Long a champion of common sense zoning and good urban planning, we fervently believe that the Upper East Side can be a place where new development can co-exist in harmony with architectural beauty and historic resources.

AREAS OF RESPONSIBILITY
The Manager of Preservation and Outreach (the Manager) reports to the Executive Director and is part of a small, collaborative team and thus involved in almost all aspects of the FRIENDS activities.

The Manager is also responsible for all research initiatives as they arise.

Program Management and Fundraising: The Manager of Preservation and Outreach also spearheads the planning and management of all public programs and events with support from the Executive Director, including the Annual Awards Ceremony. In addition, the Manager supports development, fundraising, and membership management activities, leads content creation for website and e-blasts, manages interns, and helps with general office administration.

Special Projects: The Manager of Preservation and Outreach will support ongoing special projects that consist of advocacy around the historic and cultural resources of Yorkville and reform for common sense zoning on the Upper East Side, including specific legal and administrative challenges to out of scale buildings in our neighborhood.
