Workshops

For local history organizations to move forward, the board, volunteers and staff need to continually learn new skills. Local History Services has crafted workshops to help you succeed by developing new expertise and learning best practices. We offer workshops on various topics around the state and workshops on demand at your site.

We’ve been busy planning spring workshops and are offering three NEW ones and two old favorites. We also look forward to seeing you at our In Your Neighborhood and Bicentennial Brown Bag meetings.
