Live Webinar: AASLH Conversations: Leadership, Boards, and Response to COVID-19
- Registration Closed
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused an unprecedented crisis in our local communities, country, and world. Many are seeking answers and guidance during this time, and AASLH has been listening to the concerns from the history community. In response, we are developing more online content for our colleagues working from home. While no one has all the answers, we hope these topic-focused webinars will provide a space for history practitioners to share ideas and learn from each other collectively to help us all keep moving forward. We know many organizations are facing financial strain due to the pandemic, so we are developing this new AASLH Conversations webinar series with that in mind. We have drastically reduced the registration fee and are also providing a special promo code to waive the registration fee completely. Recognizing that this is a time of crisis that affects the whole field, AASLH included, we appreciate anyone who is still able to contribute to AASLH’s efforts either through the reduced registration fee or a donation.
How can the boards and leadership of history institutions respond to the challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic? In this interactive online conversation, history leaders and AASLH Council Members Christy Coleman (Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation) and Katherine Kane (retired, Harriet Beecher Stowe Center) will discuss how the boards and senior leadership of historical organizations can serve their audiences and communities and support their staffs and volunteers while confronting immense challenges and uncertain futures.
