Founded in 1924, The Conservation Society of San Antonio is one of the first community preservation groups in the United States. Beginning with efforts to preserve such unique sites as the city’s Spanish Colonial missions, they are responsible for saving many of the historic attractions that make San Antonio the top tourist destination in Texas!

Michael, PhD, Executive Director of the Conservation Society of San Antonio, is Trustee Emeritus of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, where he was Vice Chair of the Preservation and Sites Committee and the Diversity Task Force. His 37 year career in heritage conservation includes senior positions such as Chair of the National Council for Preservation Education and John Bryan Chair of Historic Preservation at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where he taught historic preservation for 16 years. A prominent keynote speaker and widely read writer, Vincent has also worked on heritage projects in Asia, South America and Europe.
