    The Washington Chapter of the Association for Preservation Technology (APT DC) congratulates the 2017 winners of the Emerging Professionals Sponsorship Program (EPSP). Each year two emerging professionals are selected to receive stipends to attend either the International Preservation Trades Network (IPTN) Workshop or the annual Association for Preservation Technology (APTI) conference. The 2017 APT DC Emerging Professionals are Naomi Doddington and Moira Nadal.

    Naomi Doddington completed her Master of Science in Historic Preservation through the joint program at Clemson University and the College of Charleston in May 2016. Shortly after graduation she began working for the Washington Office of the National Park Service as an architect in the Historic American Buildings Survey division. She is now a Project Engineer at Consigli Construction. Ms. Doddington will be attending the IPTN Workshop, Makin’ It By Hand, September 8-10 in Detroit.

    Moira Nadal graduated from University of Pennsylvania School of Design in December 2013, also with a Master of Science in Historic Preservation. She works at the National Trust for Historic Preservation where she is manager of their easement program. Ms. Nadal will be attending the APTI conference, Capitalizing on Heritage, October 11-14 in Ottawa.

    APT DC is a not-for-profit educational association serving preservation professionals in the greater Washington, DC metro area. The chapter promotes the exchange of ideas and knowledge concerning the conservation of historic resources through tours, lectures, workshops, and symposia. The Emerging Professionals Sponsorship Program is paid for through the APT DC Founders Fund which is funded by money raised from the annual Silent Auction, fees paid for AIA continuing education credits and member donations. Donations can be made using the Donate tab and are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.

    APT DC Member Inducted into APTI College of Fellows

    Congratulations to APT DC Member Randall J. Biallis, AIA, Hon ASLA, for his induction into the APTI College of Fellows at APT 2016 San Antonio! The College of Fellows is a forum of leaders in the preservation field who have made significant commitments to APT to investigate and advocate future needs and trends in the preservation profession. There are currently 69 members, and new members are inducted each year.

    Randy has been involved in historic preservation since the beginning of the efforts to professionalize the movement in this country and currently serves as the longest tenured NPS Chief Historical Architect (25 years) and Program Manager for the Park Historic Structures and Cultural Landscape Program. Randy has been a behind-the-scenes leader always pushing the limits in advancing new preservation technologies and programs.

    Randy was mentored by the famed National Park Service Historical Architect Charles E. Peterson (founding member and first President of APT) who personally invited him to become a member in 1969. This began Randy’s involvement over the next 47 years with APT, the Washington Chapter of APT and later the US National Park Service’s partnerships with both APT and the AIA’s Historic Resources Committee.
