San Antonio

Since becoming Executive Director of the San Antonio Conservation Society in June, 2016, Dr. Michael has worked to maintain the organization’s longstanding commitment and pioneering approach to heritage. Since 1924 the Conservation Society has been concerned not only with buildings and landscapes, but areas of natural beauty and the customs – the “intangible heritage” of its richly diverse populace.

Vincent has been involved in the ongoing discussions about the future of Alamo Plaza, issues surrounding the development around the World Heritage San Antonio Missions, advocacy for Brackenridge and Hemisfair Parks, and working with communities trying to preserve the elements of their heritage they value most, including gas stations, the Hays Street Bridge, and legacy businesses.
