A Workshop for Virginia's Local Historical Societies
Monday, October 1, 2012 • 8:30 am–5:00 pm

WHO SHOULD ATTEND — staff, volunteers, and active members of local historical societies

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN — strategies for planning and completing successful projects, evaluating and working effectively with your collections and other organizations, identifying grant opportunities, and building support for your society. Plus, take a behind-the-scenes tour of the Library of Virginia.

A limited number of travel stipends will be available for attendees whose institutions are located more than 150 miles from Richmond. This workshop is sponsored by the Virginia State Historical Records Advisory Board (SHRAB) and made possible by a generous State and National Archival Partnership (SNAP) grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC), the funding arm of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).
