Who we are

The mission of the Historic Resources Committee (HRC) is to identify, understand, and preserve architectural heritage, both nationally and internationally. HRC is engaged in promoting the role of the historic architect within the profession through the development of information and knowledge among members, allied professional organizations, and the public.

We hope you'll join us February 7-8 at the annual HRC Taliesin Colloquium where we'll discuss how codes have impacted existing buildings and what to expect from upcoming code changes.
