Program 1

Michigan Historic Preservation Network sponsors an annual statewide preservation conference, offers workshops throughout the year, and maintains a Speakers Bureau which offers programs that range from a single evening's presentation to mentoring relationships with communities where preservation is just becoming an issue. The Network founded the Sweetwater Trail in 1991 to celebrate Michigan's shoreline, the longest in the nation. Heritage tourism has become one of the largest in the tourism industry and this program promotes both the history and tourism initiatives.

Ms. Nancy Finegood

BIO

Nancy M. Finegood is the executive director of the Michigan Historic Preservation Network. A Michigan native, Finegood was most recently the executive director of the St. Croix Landmarks Society in the U.S. Virgin Islands. She was also a partner in a private Caribbean tour agency. Before moving to the Virgin Islands, Finegood was director of financial analysis at the March Group, controller at the Shaarey Zedek Synagogue and a computer consultant for Miller Systems. She graduated from Wayne State University in 1975, where she also earned an MBA with an accounting concentration in 1998. She is also a certified public accountant. "I see this as a great opportunity to work with a strong board of directors," says Finegood of her new post. "I've been very impressed by the dedication of the board, which comes from all over the state as well as by the variety of interests and occupations they bring to the organization." Finegood brings a varied skill set to the state advocacy and educational group, says Matthew Schulte, president of the Board of Directors. "In today's world, financial management is critical to the survival of a nonprofit organization," Schulte says. "Nancy's accounting background gives the Network something that few nonprofits have " a good financial manager who is also a visionary dedicated to the cause."
