WASHINGTON, D.C. – President Donald J. Trump recently announced his intent to appoint Connecticut State Representative John H. Frey to be a member of the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP). 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) Chairman Aimee Jorjani today welcomed new Expert Member Rick Gonzalez, swearing him into a term ending in June 2023. President Donald J. Trump appointed Gonzalez to the ACHP.

“We look forward to utilizing Rick’s expertise as the ACHP enhances opportunities for minority architects and incorporates a preservation ethic for those in the architecture and building fields,” Chairman Jorjani said. “Rick has a lot to contribute to the national historic preservation conversation, through his many efforts within Florida and the local preservation community. We have already enlisted his help in the Traditional Trades Training Task Force we recently launched.”

Episode 2 of the ACHP Podcast, "Preservation Perspectives," features an interview with Mr. Robert Stanton, ACHP Expert Member and former National Park Service Director about the holiday Juneteenth. The holiday commemorates the day when a Union general informs the enslaved people of Texas that the Civil War was over and that they are free. This episode examines what has happened since then and how historic preservation can serve to preserve the past while looking to a future that includes freedom, justice, and equality for all.
