The Advocacy Committee takes a positive, proactive stand for the preservation, restoration or rehabilitation of historic properties and landscapes by offering a strong voice within our community. Advocacy collaborates with other stakeholders on preservation issues.



The Communications Committee increases awareness of what SPA does and what we’ve accomplished within Spokane and Spokane County. Communications does this through publication of our newsletter, the Update, keeping our website current, and hosting our booth at community events.



The Development Committee is in charge of all of SPA’s fundraising and works to grow our membership. Development cultivates new friends, encourages members to volunteer on SPA’s committees, and develops leaders within our community.

Doing It

Sub-Committee of Education


The Doing It Committee organizes our most loved community outreach program, the Doing It Projects. This is how we practice what we preach through hands-on preservation projects that include tree planting, cleaning, paint prep, photographing historic resources, removing inappropriate siding, and much more.



The Education Committee engages the public through educational opportunities in Spokane and Spokane County. Education works by getting people involved in projects and offers opportunities to learn why preservation is so vital to our community by hands on learning sessions and outreach through our Old House Workshops.

Heritage Fund Grants


The Heritage Fund Committee is how SPA funds preservation projects. They work hard to ensure we put our grant money to good work throughout our community. Grants can be used for preservation, restoration or rehabilitation projects including research and register nominations.


Sub-Committee of Development


The Events Committee plans and hosts events for our members. They organize, plan and staff volunteers for SPA’s Quarterly Meetings including the Holiday Party. The committee acts as guides and posts at our Autumn Heritage Homes Tour and assist at all special celebrations and events.
