This event is designed for but not limited to history museum volunteers, paid staff, board members, and history students. Topics in the conference schedule are expected to address a broad range of work typically found in small to mid-sized local history organizations (navigating a global pandemic, operating a museum, archives, historic site or house, etc.) as well as individuals who perform various roles within an organization.
