Our Board

Our Board of Directors and staff have many years of combined professional and academic experience in education, management, program development and evaluation. Our leadership continues to play a vital role in ensuring the memory and legacy of the 9/11 victims is protected and our collective national history is properly preserved. With the Coalition of 9/11 Families, our leadership successfully led a campaign to identify and protect the World Trade Center historic artifacts including the remains of the twin tower footprints at bedrock and served as a consulting party in the World Trade Center federal historic preservation review processes.
