CCHS has always done a fantastic job of presenting topics that are important to historical society governance. This workshop will be worthwhile for both board members and individuals who want to improve their skills and knowledge about society operations.

I’ll be attending. I’ve been sharing the info with other historical society leaders that I know about. Sounds like a good program.

I’ll be attending. These events are always a great opportunity to connect with other historical societies and find out what things they are doing, be inspired, and come away with useful information to share.

This is the main CCHS Spring event. No Spring Symposium has been scheduled. Major effort has been expended to give the members and non members the best of Knowledge Base information. Soooo, come to the Spring Workshop!
