Oct 5 & 6 - Ohio Local History Alliance Conference
October 5-6 (Friday and Saturday, all day) The Ohio Local History Alliance's Annual Conference is a great opportunity to network and learn from others in the history and museum world. This year's theme is "Inspire or Expire: How to Remain Relevant in the 21st Century" and sessions will be held at the Holiday Inn in Worthington, Ohio. Oberlin Heritage Center Museum Education and Tour Coordinator Liz Schultz will present a session on "Teen Volunteers - Recruiting, Supervising, and Inspiring the Next Generation," while Executive Director Pat Murphy teams up with Kay Fisher (Executive Director of the Clinton County Historical Society) for "How Historic Houses Tell Communities' Stories in Different Ways: Examples from Ohio and Elsewhere."
