Volunteer with the Queen Anne Historical Society
The Queen Anne Historical Society is a totally volunteer run organization. It takes a lot of people to keep our society up, running and healthy. To volunteer, please contact the President, Michael Herschensohn at 206.412.0702 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We appreciate all assistance in helping the Queen Anne Historical Society to preserve the history and fabric of our neighborhood.
The accountant reviews the society's financial records annually and makes recommendations for accurate bookkeeping and record keeping by our treasurer. The meticulous records maintained to date by a certified professional accountant will facilitate the transition.
The archivist manages the societies collections which are stored at our office. They consist largely of ephemera, books, maps, photographs, historic files, oral history recordings and works on paper. Collection management also involves accession and deaccession decisions. Familiarity with archival databases (we have just acquired PastPerfect) and professional collection management standards are a big plus, but training is available.
Board of Trustees
The Queen Anne Historical Society is recruiting new members for its board of trustees. A passion for Queen Anne and its history is a must. A love of the quality of life on all sides — top, bottom, east, west, north and south and sides — of this unique neighborhood is a huge plus! Board meetings occur the second Wednesday of every month except July. Public meetings take place on the 4th Thursday of January, March, May, September and November. Tasks are diverse and may include overseeing special projects (e.g. building surveys, oral histories, documentary photography) or on-going administrative tasks, program planning, landmark preservation/protection, membership and much, much more. It would be delightful to find people interested in writing about the local scene for our newsletter, the Queen Anne News, the Queen Anne Blog and our Website. And this list is not exhaustive.
