Q: Is there anything else you'd like us to know about your experience at the Annual Meeting?
A: The best part is the networking, seeing old friends, making new ones and getting a better handle on our state’s varied history. The flow dragged in spots and timing was off in others. Too few attendees actually stayed at host hotel that limited the interaction at breakfast and lunch.

Q: Next year, what topics do you hope to see at the Annual Meeting?
A: The History Fair and Author’s Afternoon worked well. It was a great opportunity to make some totally unexpected or anticipated connections. Though attendance at some of the 18 varied workshops was down, there were plenty of animated conversations and sharing of ideas. Topics should include making technology work in bringing in members. Fewer workshops might help until we get to the point of having greater numbers at our annual meeting.

Q: Is there anything else you'd like us to know about your experience at the Annual Meeting?
A: I was a bit embarrassed that attendance for several of the History Superstar presentations was so scanty. Perhaps this was because of competition from the other tracks that addressed “best practices.” I would like to see the balance shift in favor of historical content. Phil Brigandi’s RAMONA presentation should have been SRO. Sad.

The price disparity between full registration and one day registration was way out of whack. I would personally like to see a return to the format where attendees have the option of choosing and paying for the individual agenda items that they wish to attend. The present format is too much like cable TV.

Q: Next year, what topics do you hope to see at the Annual Meeting?
A: Including the “History Superstars” track was absolutely inspired. I would hope this would be part of next year’s annual meeting ( &all the conferences). Kudos to whomever selected the presenters; they were knowledgeable, enthusiastic and articulate. The opportunity to engage in dialog between presenter and audience came as close as I can recall to achieving the symposium ideal. Perhaps arranging the seating in a circle would enable more “give and take” between presenter and the audience, and between audience members themselves and presenter.

Q: Is there anything else you'd like us to know about your experience at the Annual Meeting?
A: I appreciate the efforts of the CCHS – but let’s concentrate on true, viable solutions to issues facing local historical societies of all kinds.

Q: Next year, what topics do you hope to see at the Annual Meeting?
A: I would really like to see some emphasis given to issues affecting historical societies that DO NOT run museums etc. We also need some concrete, viable solutions (or ideas) to issues brought up by the topic titles – I expected the speakers to address viable solutions to the topics at hand – what I often got was “managementese” talk that filled the class period, but offered little help. Let’s talk about CONCRETE measures to raise funds, expand our membership, get more people involved, successful ways in which historical societies have expanded their roles in the local community.
