Biographical or historical data
In 1996, the General Assembly amended 23-292 of the Code of Virginia, to establish the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation as the Commonwealth's authorized agency to "to perform the following actions directly related to the planning, coordination and implementation of the celebration of the 400th anniversary of the founding of Jamestown in 1607. Jamestown 2007 is a sub-agency of the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation (JYF) created in 1997 to plan and implement commemorative events marking the 400th anniversary of the founding of Jamestown, the first permanent English settlement in the Americas. From 1997 through 2004, the agency focused on developing the structure of the commemoration including recruiting volunteer board and committee leadership, conceptualizing the signature events, creating strategies to achieve the goals of the commemoration, forging partnerships with appropriate public and private organizations, seeking corporate sponsorships and building a staffing plan. By the beginning of 2005 a new phase of the commemoration work began with the movement from planning to implementation. Prosody Creative Services was retained through Jamestown 2007's private affiliate to produce the Godspeed Promotional Sail, the Yorktown 225th Anniversary, the National Teach-In and Anniversary Weekend. Other partnerships and consultants have been or are being selected to perform key roles in implementing the other signature events.
