Welcome to 2018, a year of change for the King Williams Association.  Last year we said goodbye and good luck to Cherise Bell, our first Executive Director.  In her five years with the KWA she took a wholly volunteer organization and turned it into a professionally run association with influence beyond its borders and throughout the city.  We wish her luck in her new role as a historic preservation consultant. 

It is with mixed emotions that I announce that our Executive Director, Cherise Bell, has decided to leave the King William Association to take on a new position where she will continue her passion for preservation and restoration.  

Cherise was the KWA’s first ED when she was hired in May 2012.  She has done a remarkable job over the last five years taking a wholly volunteer organization and transforming it into a truly professionally-run nonprofit.  She professionalized the organization’s procedures, operations, membership interaction, and community and government relations.

This past year was a busy one with several accomplishments including:
