      • The Society of Architectural Historians (SAH) is an international not-for-profit membership organization that promotes the study and preservation of the built environment worldwide.

  • 3. Why a Buffalo chapter?
      • We think it is time to establish an organization whose sole mission is to promote documentation and sound scholarship of our remarkable built environment, both the ordinary and the extraordinary
      • The SAH is holding its annual meeting in Buffalo in 2012
      • In the 1980s, Buffalo had an SAH chapter which eventually was absorbed by the Preservation Coalition of Erie County, which is now Preservation Buffalo Niagara.

  • 5. How far along are we?
      • We are developing a mission statement
      • We are deciding on our geographic scope
