Current Priorities and Activities
NEWSLETTER ... We recently launched an efficient and inexpensive open newsletter for members of the Society and other interested persons and related organizations. We are looking for contributors.
WEBSITE ... We continue to add listings to our growing online Directory of Heritage Professionals and photos to the 'Saskatchewan's Historic Places' register. Links to external archives will lead vistiors to our archives of discontinued WORTH magazines and articles of the History Built Brick by Brick series by Frank Korvemaker. We are looking for volunteers to help with building a photo register where it will survive for the long term.
PUBLIC ENQUIRIES ... We still handle public enquiries from across Saskatchewan through our website. Most are from property owners asking about designation, construction history, and conservation.
FACEBOOK ... Yes, we have established a social-media page on facebook. NEWS items will be posted there.
RESEARCH RESOURCE ... Organizations and many individuals have accumulated a wide range of books, records and other resources associated with built heritage. Some old books are, in themselves, works of art and of heritage value. We are talking at this point about creating a collection that could provide access to these resources, perhaps listed online. We are making enquiries and planning to write a proposal. if you want to join in the discussion.
COMMUNITY ... The Society is a member of Heritage Saskatchewan, SaskCulture, and The National Trust for Canada. We also are a founding partner of the annual Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan Heritage Awards.
