Is your heritage organization run by volunteers? If so, you are welcome to join in the discussion at the second Volunteer Organizations Colleague Circle!
Meriden Historical Society
Thursday, September 8
10 am to noon
Registration is strongly encouraged. Free!
Historical Societies, history museums and historic sites run only by volunteers share a lot of the same challenges. At the first meeting of this group participants brainstormed questions about governance, collections, digitization, and a whole lot more. By popular demand, we're continuing these discussion sessions at locations throughout Connecticut, and you are welcome to attend as many as you can.
The discussion agenda is set by the group, and facilitated by the host organization and CLHO staff and board members. Refreshments will be provided, and conversation will be lively. All attendees are invited to stay for a tour of the museum after the meeting. You may even bring a brown-bag lunch and stick around for further informal discussion.
This is your opportunity to meet people who face the same joys and challenges that you face every day as a leader and volunteer. We hope you can join the discussion and learn in an informal, collegial atmosphere.
