Board terms are two years with the option to renew up to three consecutive terms (6 years). There is a commitment of approximately 4–6 hours per month, depending on the time of year. The successful applicants will be expected to commit to a minimum of one 2-year term and, if not already a member, join ACO London.

Architectural Conservancy Ontario - London Region (ACO London) is committed to conserving London area’s heritage architecture through advocacy and public awareness. We support and encourage architectural conservation through the creative reuse and re-purposing of older buildings, the creation of Heritage Conservation Districts to protect our historic neighbourhoods, and the active retention and maintenance of London area’s unique history as embodied by its built heritage.

ACO London is a volunteer-based community organization founded over 55 years ago with the threatened destruction of London’s original financial buildings, the Ridout Street Complex, now a National Historic Site (and currently under threat of unsympathetic development).
