Winter 2021 Virtual Workshop Series

Navigating the Covid-19 Pandemic for Historical Organizations


Virtual Event Date: February 25, 2021 | 10:00am - 11:00am
HOSTING YOUR OWN VIRTUAL EVENT DURING COVID-19:  Join Charlie Basham of Gold Bug Park as he enlightens us on how Gold Bug Park has successfully turned to virtual field trips! While the park usually hosts thousands of students each year to learn about the Gold Rush Era, that came to an abrupt halt during the pandemic.  Gold Bug Park quickly decided that if the students couldn't come to the park, they would bring the park to them - virtually! During the first of three sessions in our winter workshop series via Zoom, learn more about how to make your own virtual events a success to continue sharing California history as we all navigate this pandemic together!

Virtual Event Date: April 15, 2021 | 10:00am - 11:00am
WRITING, EDITING, AND PUBLISHING HISTORY:  In this 45-minute Illustrated Zoom presentation, Brian Dervin Dillon will share practical advise on how to research historical topics, write them up and get them published.  Topic selection, oral history interviewing, illustration selection, text and figure layout, fine-tuning content and presentation, and editing the work of others will be discussed.  The practical ins and outs of historical writing will be illustrated by examples published by Brian, his father, and his son.

Virtual Event Date: PENDING

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!
