PRESIDENT'S LETTER

 

Follow Us!

The Society of Architectural Historians/Southern California Chapter is pleased to announce that we are now active on Twitter and Instagram. Board Members Lauren Van Der Veen and Kim Bahnsen McCarron will be posting selected SAH/SCC events and sharing information of interest to our members and all who love Southern California architecture. Follow us at @SAHSCC and don’t forget to use the hashtag #SAHSCC.

SAH/SCC Membership Secretary Rina Rubenstein will continue to manage the organization’s Facebook page, posting a variety of interesting articles, announcements, and, of course, notices of upcoming SAH/SCC events.

All this brings me to an important and relevant point relative to privacy and social media. Recent revelations of Facebook security breaches and the passage of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) in Europe have made individual privacy issues top of mind for everyone.

SAH/SCC has always protected the privacy of its members and the homeowners who generously share their architecturally significant residences with us. Our commitment to privacy protection remains strong in a world of social media. Tweets and posts from our events will NOT feature private homes. We believe that an architecturally significant residence is first and foremost someone’s home and deserves to be treated with the utmost respect. As historians and enthusiasts, we are not entitled to broadcast those spaces to the world.

In recent years, event attendees have been asked to refrain from interior photography. This policy will continue to be enforced. SAH/SCC reserves the right to deny access to anyone who does not respect the policies of the organization.

Lastly, the private contact information our members share with us is just that: private. We do not share information with other organizations. Our membership business model refrains from ad placement on the website, so you can rest easy that we have no underlying algorithm studying your every move. And, frankly, our all-volunteer board members don’t have the interest—we are all much too focused on planning events.

We do believe that social media can play a valuable role in connecting our members, generating awareness of the remarkable built environment of Southern California, and encouraging young people to engage with architectural history. So please follow us and help to expand the conversation about architecture.
