Natalie Henshaw’s work with the Campaign for Historic Trades has been instrumental in helping bring the national preservation trades community together. Recently, The Campaign for Historic Trades released a first-of-its-kind labor study on the status of historic trades in America. Analysis shows the need for a larger and better-trained historic trades workforce; 100,000 workers needed within the next decade. This knowledge and awareness can help empower the community to work together to recognize and expand on the programs that currently exist while also building new ‘funnels of opportunity’ to attract dynamic individuals into our high–demand fields. Get ready to get passionate about the work that lies ahead!
