Historic Macon Foundation

Historic Macon Foundation, a 501©3 non-profit, is one of the nationís largest, most productive and most innovative local preservation organizations in the nation with over 550 member households in Middle Georgia and 6,000 listed historic buildings in our stewardship. Since our founding in 1964, Historic Macon Foundation has served as the regional historical society of note. Historic Macon is growing very quickly, with revenues having increased 225% in our last audit. We need the help of a full-time marketing staff person who can help build on our success. Historic Macon saves Maconís architectural treasures by purchasing, rehabilitating and selling structures listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In addition, Historic Macon educates the public about the importance of Maconís history and architecture, runs events to help celebrate Maconís unique assets and operates the Sidney Lanier Cottage house museum. Our programs in economic development and neighborhood revitalization are award winners on a national scale and serve as a model for other preservation and revitalization organizations.The organization is staffed by four full time staff people (including this position) and two part time staff people, all of whom are vibrant, dedicated, fun and hard working. The office atmosphere is fast-paced, multi-tasking, technology-oriented and highly collaborative. Employees are treated as professionals in their expertise and each staff person has the opportunity to lead and teach other team members and literally hundreds of volunteers who are interested in our mission. Staff members manage their own time and tasks, and a flexible work schedule is a benefit and an obligation with night and weekend work expected, but office hours served less rigorously.
