Board of Directors

Our board members bring time, talent, energy, and passion to Preservation Georgetown. We could not do our preservation work without them. Each of the nine board members serves a two-year term, so every year at our Annual Picnic in May we say goodbye to members rolling off the board and welcome new board members who are elected by the membership. 

The PG board is most definitely a working board because between monthly meetings, board members chair committees in individual areas to further PG efforts in our community. They come together to work on projects and plan special events as well as fun times with membership and the community. 

Please let us know if you have an interest in serving on the board or committee in the future.

An Army and Air Force veteran, and a graduate of the University of Houston, Lawrence found this wonderful community by accident after dropping off a friend in Austin. In 2009 he stumbled upon a house for sale and the rest is history.
