committee of young professionals
Skyline Council is Landmarks Illinois’ committee of young professionals. It consists of more than 30 emerging leaders with an interest in historic preservation, the built environment and sustaining healthy communities. Through service, social engagement and advocacy, Skyline Council members promote Landmarks Illinois’ mission to empower individuals to save places that are important to them while strengthening their networks. Skyline Council was founded in 2011.
Skyline Council organizes and presents networking and fundraising events throughout the year. Its signature events include the Skyline Social, the Skyline Historic Pub Crawl and the highly popular Skyline Trivia Night.
Utilizing members’ wide range of expertise in several career disciplines, the council began working with the Village of Campton Hills in 2015 to restore a one-room schoolhouse constructed in 1854 by John Whitney. With continued membership growth, the Skyline Council has dedicated its energy in mobilizing young preservation-minded professionals in the work of Landmarks Illinois.
