Board of Directors
St Croix County Historical Society Board of Directors consists of 9 to 15 members.
Directors are elected by a majority vote of Society Members present at the Annual Society Meeting in even numbered years. To be elected, candidates must be current society members. Terms are four years with no term limits.
The Board of Directors conducts the affairs of the Society. The Board of Directors approves committees, authorizes expenditures, oversees staff, creates and implements policies for the society and its facilities.
Historical Society committees help with exhibit displays, research, interpretation, finances, gardening, managing the museum store, maintenance, technology, marketing, publications, education, and collections.
Committee members are recommended by volunteers and staff, appointed by the Society President, and approved by the Board of Directors annually.
Get involved to serve on one of our many fun and fulfilling committees.
