Free workshops offered by the League of Historical Societies of NJ

The League of Historical Societies of New Jersey -- 

Free virtual workshops offered by the League


League Workshops Offered Virtually


Since the League is not able to hold our regular regional meetings at this time, we have decided instead to offer some of the workshops that are available to our members as virtual presentations. 

The first workshop will be offered through Zoom meetings on Saturday, March 20, from 10 to 11 AM and again on Wednesday, March 24, from 3 to 4 PM. There is no fee for this workshop, however, you will need to register so we can email you the materials that are usually handed out at an in-person session. There is no limit on workshop participants, so more than one person from your organization is welcome to attend.

The first workshop offered will be Your Mission, Vision and Long Range Plan. Your mission statement is the heart of your organization. Is it clear and concise? Do your Board and your members know exactly what you are all about? Do you know where you are headed, where you want to go? This workshop will cover these basic documents that are critical for the success of any organization. 

The workshops will be presented by our Treasurer, Pary Tell. Ms. Tell is the retired Director of the Division of Culture & Heritage for Cape May County, where for 5 years she oversaw their arts and history grants program, conducted workshops for local non-profit cultural organizations and offered assistance to arts and history organizations in organization essentials. 

If you would like to attend this workshop, please email Pary at, with your name, email and which date you will be attending. You will receive a confirmation as well as the supplemental materials for you to print. If you have any questions, you can call Pary at 609-886-8577.

(Please email Pary directly; please do NOT reply to this email.)

This break in normal operations is a good time to step back and reassess how your organization is doing and how you are going to move forward in the future. We hope you will take advantage of this program from your League of Historical Societies.
