The Calgary Heritage Authority (CHA), established in 2000, is a merger of the previously existing Heritage Advisory Board and the Calgary Municipal Heritage Properties Authority. The CHA is governed by the Province of Alberta CHA Act.
The CHA comprises 12 members of the public who are appointed by Council – four of whom are appointed for a three-year term. The chair is chosen annually by the board members, while heritage planning staff serves as a non-voting professional resource.
The CHA seeks board members with experience, education and interest in heritage conservation, architecture, urban planning, local history/heritage, communications, public and stakeholder engagement, fund development and non-profit governance. Recruitment to the CHA is handled by the City Clerk’s Office every fall when it recruits for boards, committees and commissions.
