Our Mission: To preserve the nation’s heritage for future generations through innovative leadership, education, and programs.

Heritage Preservation Leadership Transition

Lawrence Reger, President of Heritage Preservation for the past 27 years, tendered his resignation, effective Friday, February 6, 2015. During his tenure, Larry’s committed service to the preservation of our nation’s cultural heritage made a significant impact on the field of collections care. Under his inspired leadership, Heritage Preservation’s efforts have advanced national preservation practice, policy, and prominence.

Thomas F. R. Clareson, former Chair of the Heritage Preservation Board of Directors, has assumed the position of Acting President. He is currently Senior Digital & Preservation Services Consultant at LYRASIS, and will remain engaged with his LYRASIS projects and partners during his tenure as Acting President.

Moving into the position of Chair of the Board of Directors of Heritage Preservation is former Board Secretary Julie Allen Page. Julie has served on the Board for the past six years, while also active as Co-Coordinator of the California Preservation Program (CPP) and the Western States & Territories Preservation Assistance Service (WESTPAS).

After extensive review of its programs alongside realistic projections of the organization's fiscal sustainability, the Board of Directors and leadership of Heritage Preservation have concluded that the continuation of its valued programming will best be achieved by transferring programs to allied partners. In the coming months, Heritage Preservation staff and Board will be working to enable a seamless transition of programs and will provide updates as the transfers are completed.
