Linda Dishman


Linda Dishman has been the leader of the Los Angeles Conservancy since 1992, first as Executive Director and now as President & CEO. Over 31 years, she has tripled the staff and multiplied its budget six-fold, transforming the Conservancy into one of the nation’s foremost local historic preservation organizations. She loves to meet and talk with members at events and tours, especially Last Remaining Seats. Linda‘s success in building support to save historic buildings is her belief that “People make history, People preserve it”.
