Bringing History to Our Community
June 8, 2016 - Motion was presented to the Board to move forward with the myHistory Pilot project.
The objective of the pilot is to test the feasibility of presenting a program hopefully to our membership, and then hopefully to the general public.
The pilot was approved at the June 2016 Board of Trustee Meeting. Each trustee has the option to Opt-In or Opt-Out. If you decide to Opt-In you can either request a printed set of documents in a folder, or pilot the effort using the online materials (your choice).
At each trustee meeting, we will discuss the pilot and list any questions, issues, recommendations, or actions that works to improve the program before expanding the progarm to our membership.
