On Wednesday, November 19th, at 6:30pm, there will be a meeting at the Webber Park Community Center to begin organizing a historical society representing the Camden neighborhood of Minneapolis. The group will build on the efforts of Buzzy Bohn and others in the Camden Community Historical Society, working towards 501(c)(3) status.
- Why a Camden historical society? Why do we want 501(c)(3) status?
- Committees to brainstorm ideas regarding:
- Name of Organization
- Mission of Organization (Why should there be a historical society?)
- Membership (What constitutes a “member”?)
- Governance (Who should make up the Board? How many Board members?)
- Meetings (Where, when, and how often?)
The meeting should be wrapped up by 8:00pm. If you are interested in doing a little “pre-meeting” reading, please check out this linked document from the Minnesota Historical Society which the group will use as a template in its efforts to get the group organized.
