Landmarks Illinois Influencers


Landmarks Illinois turns 50 in 2021.

To celebrate our past and welcome our future, we’re dedicating our annual spring fundraiser to the people who influenced our development along the way. We’re asking you to nominate a Landmarks Illinois influencer for recognition.

What is an “Influencer?”

An “influencer” is someone who has had, or will have, a profound effect on Illinois’ historic preservation movement and has, thereby, shaped Landmarks Illinois. Their impact could be long- or short-term and their preservation efforts may involve advocacy and policy campaigns, public engagement, organizational development, leadership, creating new preservation tools and more. The person can be any age and a professional preservationist, a past or current Landmarks Illinois board or staff member, a volunteer, activist and/or someone whose work or efforts have impacted preservation in Illinois. Ultimately, we want the influencers we honor in 2021 to represent Landmarks Illinois’ values and the broad diversity of our state’s preservation movement.
