CCHS events are always worthwhile to attend. The subjects covered were areas that will benefit historical societies and museums. Thank you to the speakers for sharing your knowledge and answering questions. I learned something from each one of you that will be useful for our groups. I’m already making plans to meet up at the Annual Meeting in June!
