This week’s guest is unique; we’re bringing back Bonnie McDonald to talk about the work of her organization, Landmarks Illinois, as they celebrate their 50th anniversary and look forward to the next 50 years of saving places and making preservation relevant in a rapidly changing world.
I’ve had the opportunity to work closely with Bonnie McDonald for the past several years as the Vice-Chair of the Partners Network during her tenure as chair. She is a font of positivity, knowledge and empathy – and is a charismatic leader for our movement that deserves a platform – one we’re happy to give her, again, on this week’s PreserveCast.
The term “thought leader” may be overused – but that’s exactly how we’d describe today’s guest. This is an episode to listen closely to with a master practitioner in preservation advocacy, thought and management.
