Board of Directors & Advisers

HDC’s small professional staff is directed by our dedicated Board of Directors & Advisers, whose members represent over two dozen historic neighborhoods and are drawn from the fields of architecture, education, history, marketing, law, design, public relations, journalism and community activism.

HDC’s board consists of people of wide-ranging disciplines from all over the city, each of whom works on two or more committees and serves without remuneration.
