AASLH Brings Workshop on Leadership in Historical Organizations to Museum of History & Industry
June 22 - 24, 2000
For decades AASLH has been known as the home of excellent and affordable workshops. This summer AASLH strengthens that reputation with a new workshop series constructed by a team of national leaders in the history field. One offering in that series, the Leadership Institute for History Organizations will be held at the Museum of History & Industry in Seattle, Washington, June 22-24, 2000.
The workshop agenda will consist of a seminar style discussion of critical leadership issues such as: organizational change, strategic thinking, and other concerns fundamental to being a director of a historical organization. Harold and Susan Skramstad, now working as private consultants and formerly the Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village, will serve as workshop faculty.
Other workshops in the series include Historic House Museum Issues and Operations, Collections Management and Practices, and Interpretation Issues and Strategies.
In addition to the lead faculty, each workshop has a committee of exceptional history professionals to develop these outstanding workshops. Members of the committees bring to the curriculums many years of experience leading historical organizations around the country. They are accomplished and practiced in their respective fields, successful teachers, authors, and creative thinkers who break new ground in the development and redesign of new and existing history organizations. Each team includes individuals who are consistently sought after for their abilities to develop quality programming.
This new series of workshops will be offered twice a year at leading history organizations, museums, and historic sites around the country. The workshops address subjects in a "hands-on" environment giving participants practical guidance that builds on existing skills and develops new skills. Registration cost of $185 per AASLH member includes a notebook of reference materials along with two lunches.
