The QQA is happy to announce that the Arkansas Humanities Council awarded the organization a mini-grant to support our Preservation Conversations monthly lecture series. This is the second year that the QQA has been awarded a mini-grant in support of this project.
The QQA is pleased to welcome a new slate of board members and officers in 2019, including professionals expert in content development, business, real estate, finance, architecture, nonprofit management, historic preservation, scientific research, and law.
In 2018 the QQA board decided to restructure the organization’s branding with the goal of streamlining its web presence and clarifying its mission.
On February 20, 2019 the QQA, Preserve Arkansas, and other supporters will host a legislative reception at Curran Hall. This biennial reception gives preservationists from throughout the state an opportunity to connect with legislators and administration officials to advocate for historic preservation during the legislative session.
On November 14, 2018 the QQA presented the 2018 Greater Little Rock Preservation Awards at the yearly membership meeting, located at the Historic Arkansas Museum. The Awards of Merit and the Peg Smith awards were nominated and reviewed by a group of QQA Members, Dana Boyster, Denise Ennett, Patrick Anders, Hunter Windle, and Shalah Brummett. The recommendations were then approved by the QQA Board of Directors.
QQA members Joann and Garth Martin exemplify the spirit of the organization. They attend several events every year, they volunteer, and they remember the QQA when they think about their own legacy.
