'History from A to (Generation) Z'

65th Annual Meeting of the League of Local Historical Societies & Museums
Saturday, October 27, 2018
Woodstock, VT

New audiences, new directions, old collections. Join colleagues from around the state for a day of networking and learning centered around navigating the practical aspects of running a historical society or museum. Explore ways to engage with the new generations of visitors, as well as the those next in line to take the helm at your local society.

Have a great idea or program to share? Session proposals are now being accepted for the conference.

Sessions take place in the morning and afternoon, and are approximately 60 minutes long. Traditional session formats (i.e.- presentations, panels, roundtable/guided discussion) as well as alternative session arrangements (Pecha Kucha, “speed” networking/discussion, mini-workshops, etc.) will be considered. We would also be interested in 2-part sessions, or sessions that “split” an individual session block.

The majority of attendees are from small, often all-volunteer organizations. There is a wide range of experience and education within the group related to historical societies & museums. In general, sessions that emphasize practical aspects of museum and history work are prioritized over purely theoretical. Sessions that cover all aspects of museum, historical and non-profit work would be applicable to this audience. Including but not limited to: Collections, Education, Board, Volunteers, Exhibitions, Public Programs, Preservation, Technology, etc. Session presenters receive free registration to the meeting.
