Ian Kennaway, a founder of The Friends, addressed the Association of Owners of Castles and Châteaux in Boskovice
September 2015 - Ian Kennaway, a founder of The Friends, addressed the Association of Owners of Castles and Châteaux in Boskovice. He presented a slideshow about our history and work. The Association consists of people who have bought or inherited historic buildings in the Czech Republic, or to whom they have been restituted following the fall of communism. The primary goal of the Association is the preservation of heritage. It has succeeded in having one of its board members join the Expert Committee of the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic on the care of monuments. This will permit the Association to influence the preparation of, and amendments to, laws concerning monuments, and regulations relating to their care. In the area of international contacts, the Association has become a member of the Europe-wide organisation European Historic Houses. The website is http://amhz.cz/en/
