Become A Preservation Texas Member

Advocacy, collaboration, educational tools and members discounts


We are only as strong as our membership.  We are more effective as advocates and educators if we are connecting with as many people as possible who share a commitment to our mission to preserve the diverse historic resources of Texas.  Membership dues are for the year ending in the month that you join.  For example, if you join in August 2019, your membership will be due to renew in August 2020.
