Henry Jordan Joins Board of National Parks Group
Washington, D.C. – Dr. Henry Jordan has been elected to the Board of Trustees of the National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA). The board is the governing body for the nonprofit park watchdog organization. “Henry Jordan is a fantastic advocate for national parks in Pennsylvania and across the country,” said NPCA President Thomas C. Kiernan. “His knowledge and leadership on national and regional preservation and sustainability issues are invaluable as we seek to ensure the future of our national heritage.
Henry Jordan, M.D., is chairman emeritus of the National Trust for Historic Preservation and president of the board of the Preservation Trust of Vermont. A resident of Chester Springs, Pa., Dr. Jordan is active in Chester County open space and historic preservation planning, and has served on several boards and community task forces that successfully conserved local landscapes and historic treasures.
He also founded and chairs the Glynwood Center in Cold Spring, New York. The Glynwood Center works with communities, and those who serve them, to address change in ways that conserve local culture and natural resources while strengthening economic wellbeing.
Dr. Jordan has served as a member of NPCA’s National Council since 2004, where he led the advisory team that provided expertise and funding for NPCA’s new field office in Pennsylvania, now led by Cinda Waldbuesser.
His initial term on NPCA’s Board of Trustees is for three years.
