Board of Directors & Staff

Preservation Massachusetts is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and maintains a professional staff. The staff collaborate on advocacy, programs and projects and with project specific consultants, such as legislative and conference planning. We also work with partners statewide, regionally and nationally.  Our office staff work from our base in Plymouth, MA while our Circuit Riders work “in the field,” responding directly to requests for advocacy assistance.
