Staff & Volunteer Coordinators:

J.J. Lamb (President & Executive Director) is a founding member of the Vail Preservation Society, a 2011 Arizona Culturekeeper and the Vail Unified School District’s 2012 Vail Volunteer of the Year. She coordinated development of the New Deal in Arizona heritage tourism map, which earned a 2009 Governor’s Heritage Preservation Honor Award. She also developed the original Civilian Conservation Corps exhibit at Colossal Cave Mountain Park and the Voices of Vail exhibit housed at the Old Vail Store & Post Office and co-curated the Arizona Historical Society’s Civilian Conservation Corp in Southern Arizona exhibit. She is currently leading the Voices of Vail oral history program and historic preservation efforts in the greater Vail area. She graduated in 1981 from the University of Arizona with a degree in History and Anthropology. In 2012 she attended the American Association for State and Local History Seminar for Historical Administration and Leadership (SHA). She credits her grandparents, who moved to Vail in 1971, with her passion for history, for Vail, and for the desire to give future generations connections to their community and heritage.
