Call for Directors

The Newfoundland and Labrador Historic Trust invites nominations for its Board of Directors.  If you are passionate about our province's built heritage, we want to hear from you!

 

The Board of Directors are unpaid volunteers, committed to the Trust’s mandate of preserving the province's built heritage. The Board holds meetings one evening per month in St. John’s.  Teleconferencing can be arranged for those who live elsewhere in the province.   Board members also lead various committees.

We welcome enthusiastic, forward-thinking candidates from a range of backgrounds, including built heritage, finance, communication, development, and governance.

The deadline for nominations is March 15, 2020.

Window Restoration Workshops

Heritage NL and the Historic Trust are offering window restoration workshops in October 2019 for property owners and professionals.

Unsure how to care for your wood windows? Can your windows be repaired? Yes, they can!

Window Restoration Workshop

Walter Furlan will lead a comprehensive wood window restoration workshop from October 25-28 with a registration fee of $500 per person. Participants must have a working knowledge of woodworking (demonstrated by training and/or experience) as well as an interest in performing and promoting wood window restoration on a commercial basis. Travel subsidies are available for participants outside the Avalon Peninsula.

Participants will receive a certificate upon successful completion of the workshop. Certificate-holders and their employers (if applicable) will be added to a list of pre-qualified contractors for referral to owners of more than 300 provincially designated heritage buildings. Certificate-holders will additionally be listed on heritagenl.ca, may be referred to in publications or on social media, and may advertise their completion of the course.
