The Connecticut League of History Organizations is beginning an exciting expansion of our capabilities and services in 2022. We are looking for new perspectives and fresh voices to join our Board of Directors to help steer our efforts. We are launching a strategic planning process that will guide our growth, and we are seeking new ideas and new Board candidates to move the organization forward. Board members set the vision and policies for the League, a member-supported non-profit. The all-volunteer Board can contain up to 19 members who represent a wide variety of history and museum interests, organizations, and individuals across the state.
Deadline: March 7, 2022
We at the League want your input in nominating candidates for our Board of Directors. You are welcome to nominate yourself, or identify someone you think we should approach about Board service. Your suggestions and ideas will help ensure that we have the diversity of voices and experiences we need at the League to do our work effectively and better serve the state's museum, cultural and heritage community.
CLHO Board members have the opportunity to partner with statewide colleagues, engage in networking with nationwide professionals and funders, and work creatively to support Connecticut’s museums and cultural centers, museum professionals, and partner organizations. Board members develop leadership skills, learn about non-profit management, and apply their unique skill sets where they are needed the most. Board members may lead advocacy efforts, assist with programming, or steward the financial health of the organization. Board members also make personal and professional connections with other history and museum people across the state and region.
CLHO is seeing several new candidates to form the class of 2022-23. You may nominate a good candidate (including yourself) using the nomination form [DOCX] [PDF] and emailing it to email@example.com. You may also email us to recommend someone you think we should reach out to about board service.
