Rossland Museum having AGM

The Rossland Historical Museum and Archives Association will be holding its Annual General Meeting on Thursday, Nov. 29 at 7 p.m.

The Rossland Historical Museum and Archives Association will be holding its Annual General Meeting on Thursday, Nov. 29 at 7 p.m. at the Museum.

The Museum has been showcasing Rossland’s history since 1967 and is currently in the process of re-imagining itself. It’s an exciting time to be on the board as we examine how to present history in an engaging, educational format.

The Museum board meets monthly and each director is elected during the AGM for a period of two years. Each director is responsible for different portfolios – i.e. maintenance, communication, education.  We are currently seeking two individuals to join our board and help guide the Museum along a new, dynamic path.

The mission of the museum is to preserve and dynamically present the heritage of Rossland and area.

Its vision is to be the visitor gateway to the Kootenays and the Columbia Basin and to inspire and engage the public through virtual and real life displays that bring our history to life.

If you are interested in joining the board, or becoming a Friend of the Museum, please email us at rosslandmuseum@netidea.com.
