2021 Best of Illinois History Awards and ISHS Annual Meeting

Elaine Evans 0 710 Article rating: No rating

This past year was challenging on multiple levels, not just because of the pandemic but due to the stress our museums, historical societies, and other educational communities have endured to keep our doors open (even when closed), and to give our staffs and volunteers meaningful tasks and goals to achieve. How empowering to know that even in an international crisis and lockdown we still can enrich other lives by sharing our Illinois history. Our “Best of Illinois History” celebration takes place over Zoom beginning at 4 p.m., on Friday, April 23.

Elaine Evans 0 1114 Article rating: 3.5

The Illinois State Historical Society seeks a few good people to serve on its  Board of Directors and Advisory Board.

Do you know someone who has:

  • enthusiasm for promoting Illinois history through the Illinois State Historical Society’s educational, commemorative, research and publishing activities?
  • experience as a lay-person or professional in the field of local, state, regional and/or national history?
  • concern for connecting the Society with local organizations and communities and expanding the Society’s membership, and ideas for ways of accomplishing these goals?
  • an understanding that Board service involves some personal expense as well as a commitment of time, as the Society holds its Board meetings (usually four per year) and its committee meetings in locations around the State.
