We would like to thank you for the support and interest that you have continually provided to the Black Heritage Society (BHS) so that the mission-the acquisition, preservation and exhibition of materials relating to the history and culture of African Americans in the State of Washington can be achieved. Those individuals who are interested in becoming a active board or committee member may contact the board at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Exhibits Committee will explore innovative ideas that will increase our exhibits to include more exposure in the entire state. The Membership Committee will explore new ideas in acquiring new members, including implementing a system. The emphasis must be on the acquisition of new members that are sufficiently motivated to contribute time and creativity including but not limited to fundraising activities. Let me know of your ideas to increase membership and visibility.
Remember, we are not limited to collecting and preserving history. We can also be the writers of history.
