Current Volunteer Opportunities:
Board of Directors
The Mount Horeb Area Historical Society is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors made up of community leaders, business professionals and scholars. The Board meets on the first Thursday of every month usually in Mount Horeb. One Board seat is currently open and may be filled by affirmation of the current Board. The position will then be voted upon at the Annual Meeting in October.
Fund Raising - The Capital Campaign Committee is charged with assisting the Board of Directors in raising $300,000 by May 15, 2016. This goal is in association with the "Final Challenge" challenge grant [read more here]. If met, the resulting grant will make it possible to build the Driftless Historium history campus. If you have experience in fundraising - or, simply, want to help us meet this generous challenge- we would welcome your participation.
Programming and Events - Assist the Museum and Archives staff in developing multi-generational programs. Help to design public events and outreach to further the Society's mission. Activities include everything from designing curricula to providing refreshments.
Publicity and Marketing - Help make sure the Society is on everyone's calendars. Expertise in developing a marketing plan is especially needed.
Membership - Increasing the Society's membership is a primary goal this year. Come with ideas about how to attract new members and new revenues. Also help to develop reasons to belong.
