2016 Board of Directors

*Officers and Representatives of the Conference of California Historical Societies - These volunteers provide the necessary leadership - making CCHS a great organization.


In 2015 the Conference of California Historical Societies reduced the maximum number of members on the Board of Directors to 25, determining that was a more manageable level. Because some positions are vacant, the President was given authority to appoint up to seven members-at-large to temporarily serve as a board member, subject to approval by the Board prior to meetings occurring. (If CCHS member, see By-laws (within NationBuilder) or contact CCHS Office for more complete information.)
