At HSF’s 61st Annual Meeting, held last November, the membership elected officers and new trustees, each of whom was selected for his or her diverse talents and leadership roles in the community. HSF’s Board of Trustees establishes the organization’s strategic plan, directs special initiatives, and attracts the necessary resources to achieve those goals.
The following were re-elected to officer roles: Jeffrey S. Eley of Savannah College of Art and Design as Chair; Brian Felder of Felder & Associates, LLC as Vice Chair; Sarah Lamar of HunterMaclean Attorneys as Secretary; Susan Clifford of Hancock Askew & Co., LLP as Treasurer; and Gregori S. Anderson of Chatham County Building Safety and Regulatory Services as Parliamentarian.
In addition to the elected officers, HSF also announced four new trustees: Hon. Thomas C. Bordeaux, Jr., a local judge and former Savannah City Council member; Colonel George W. Bowen, USAF, Ret.; Amy Brock, owner of Amy Brock Marketing, LLC; and Emily Dickinson, vice president and director of marketing and human resources at Wet Willie’s Management Corp.
Bordeaux, Bowen, Brock and Dickinson will serve three-year terms expiring in 2019.
Along with our returning officers and trustees, the new board members bring exemplary leadership and excitement to tackling the important preservation issues facing Savannah. We look forward to working closely with this talented new batch as HSF educates and engages new and diverse audiences about the relevance of preservation as a tool for building community.
HSF also recognized retiring trustee Patrick Monahan, and outgoing trustees Phillip Adams and Robert Long.
In his annual meeting address, President & CEO Daniel Carey noted the critical role these volunteers play in the operation of Historic Savannah Foundation. Thank you for your service!
