President Biden Appoints Three New Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) Members

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) Chair Sara C. Bronin today announced the installation of three new ACHP members: Expert Member Erica Avrami; Tribal Member Amelia Marchand; and General Public Member Jane Woodfin. President Joe Biden appointed them to terms ending June 2028.

“Each of these highly accomplished professionals brings their expertise and passion to the ACHP as we tackle some of preservation’s most pressing challenges,” Chair Bronin said. “The ACHP will benefit from their judgment and experience as we work to advance initiatives on climate change, housing, Indigenous Knowledge, and equity–while ensuring the preservation, enhancement, and sustainable use of our nation’s diverse historic resources.”

Avrami, of Summit, NJ, has served, along with Chair Bronin, as the co-chair of the ACHP Expert Advisory Committee since 2023. She is the James Marston Fitch Assistant Professor of Historic Preservation at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation, and a research affiliate with the Columbia Climate School’s Center for Sustainable Urban Development. She received her B.A. in architecture and her M.S. in historic preservation, both from Columbia, and her PhD in Planning and Public Policy from Rutgers University.

Marchand (sk?umqna´lqs), of the Colville Indian Reservation, WA, has a background in anthropology and environmental law and policy with more than 25 years working in the cultural and natural resources fields. A citizen of the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation, she advises governments, academic institutions, and organizations on Indigenous sovereignty and relations, Indigenous Knowledges, and climate issues.

Woodfin, of McLean, VA, joins the ACHP following a lifetime of public service and leadership. She was raised in historic Lexington, MA, and counts among her distant relatives the midnight rider Paul Revere. With a law degree from Georgetown University, Woodfin served 26 years working for the U.S. Congress, including directing the legislative staff of then-Senator Joe Biden for 15 years prior to his election as vice president. 

Avrami, Marchand, and Woodfin replace Expert Member Kristopher King, Tribal Member Reno Keoni Franklin, and General Public Member John Frey, respectively.

“I thank the three outgoing members for their dedication and service in protecting the nation’s historic resources,” Chair Bronin said. “It was a privilege to work with Kristopher and to see how his deep roots in the city of Charleston and its preservation community informed his contributions to the ACHP. I am grateful for his wise counsel and support. John’s expertise in state government and historic real estate brought another important perspective to the ACHP.”

She added: “In addition, Reno Keoni Franklin deserves the country’s gratitude not only for his long tenure of nearly 12 years, first as an Observer while chairing the National Association of Tribal Historic Preservation Officers and then as the Presidentially appointed Tribal Member, but also for his unwavering personal commitment to advancing the role of Indian Tribes and Native Hawaiians in the protection of places of importance to them. The impact of his leadership will be felt for years to come.”

About the ACHP: Established in 1966 by the National Historic Preservation Act, the ACHP is an independent federal agency that promotes the economic, educational, environmental, sustainability, and cultural values of historic preservation and advises the President and Congress on national historic preservation policy. It administers Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act and advises on federal activities, programs, and policies that affect historic and cultural properties. See www.achp.gov for more information.
