Congratulations to built heritage specialist Dr Tanya Park!
During the Christmas break, Tanya was appointed to the role of Secretary General of the ICOMOS International Wood Committee – a further endorsement of her globally recognised expertise in wooden architecture, adaptive reuse and historical analysis of heritage buildings.
As Secretary General, Tanya will not only continue her current roles as Publications Editor and representative on the ICOMOS Climate Change Committee, she will also be largely responsible for coordinating the upcoming IIWC annual conferences. These are occurring in Chile (2022), Sydney (2023) and St Petersburgh (2024).
“I have represented Australia on the ICOMOS International Wood Committee for four years and am excited to now take on the role of Secretary General. I look forward to continuing to work with colleagues at home and overseas to promote cultural heritage,” Tanya commented.
