Strategies for Success in Your Organization
Monday June 5, 2017
Four Points Sheraton, 275 Research Highway, Meriden
What makes your organization thrive? Perhaps a strong vision and well-articulated values guide your core mission, or remarkable programs and creative exhibitions strengthen your connections with the community. On the inside, perhaps it’s your wise resource management, an effective Board of Directors, inspirational leadership, or thoughtful strategic planning. No matter the ways your organization thrives, strategies for success—and success born of failure—are important. The Connecticut League of History Organizations invites you to share your insights at the CLHO Annual Conference on June 5, 2017. T he full-day conference is the perfect opportunity to discover practical advice, skills, and to participate in discussions, as well as network with your colleagues. Share your inspiring, practical success stories to help shape a thriving future for our field. It’s inspiring!
