mission

It shall be the mission of the Delphi Preservation Society to support the preservation, protection and restoration of historic structures in the greater Delphi area from the threat of neglect, obsolescence and the pressures of a modern society. To achieve this mission the Delphi Preservation Society will support, encourage, inform, and educate the public of the architectural significance, history, and heritage of the greater Delphi area.

Board of Directors

Directors of the board are elected for 3-year terms by a majority vote of the membership at the annual meeting of the Delphi Preservation Society, Inc. Officers are elected by the Board of Directors at the first board meeting following the annual membership meeting. Board vacancies may be filled by a majority vote of the directors subject to confirmation by the membership at the next annual meeting.
