Chapter & Partner News for August 2019

by SAH News | Aug 12, 2019
Each month, the Society of Architectural Historians shares news submitted by SAH chapters and partner organizations on their new and exciting programs, opportunities, awards, and events.

Marion Dean Ross / Pacific Northwest Chapter

Hello from your new Chapter President, Amanda C. Roth Clark

I am thrilled to be the Chapter President for the Marion Dean Ross Chapter of the Society of Architectural Historians.  I knew Marion when I was a child and grew up surrounded by the congenial members of this unique group. The SAH/MDR has its own special charm, a character I hope to preserve and celebrate, taking the presidential reigns from Diana Painter after her dedicated leadership for more than a decade. 

In addition to continuing the legacy of this organization, I seek to further bolster our mission, as stated in our bylaws, to further the objectives of the SAH, hold meetings, and increase awareness and knowledge of our architectural heritage. As an educator, I have a particular passion for increasing our student membership and furthering their engagement with our regional chapter – they are the future of preserving our architectural past.

As your president I embrace my stated responsibilities of liaising with our parent SAH organization and preparing our annual meetings within my time of service. I am particularly enthusiastic about working with our current leadership slate in the SAH/MDR, and anticipate the exciting years ahead of us. Plans regarding our chapter’s intersection with the 2020 SAH national meeting in Seattle are actively underway—stay tuned for more details regarding that in the weeks and months to come.

Feel free to reach out to me anytime, as I care deeply about you, our members.
