Benefits of Membership

Working with a national audience of clergy, congregational leaders, design professionals, and preservationists who care for older and historic sacred properties, Partners is often asked for names of firms specializing in some aspect of the rehabilitation of religious buildings. Through its Professional Alliance membership program, Partners is able to give visibility to firms specializing in sacred place design, construction, preservation, conservation, maintenance, and fundraising.

Membership benefits include:

  • Listing in the Professional Alliance Directory in Sacred Places magazine, which is published up to four times a year and distributed nationally to thousands of congregations, denominational offices, ecumenical councils, artisans, architects, and historic preservation and planning organizations
