Webinar: Historic House Call: Mission

April 23 @ 3:00 pm - 3:30 pm EDT


House museums are complex organizations but one of the most effective tools for navigating this complexity is the humble mission statement. In this 30-minute webinar, Erin Carlson Mast, president and CEO of President Lincoln’s Cottage in Washington, DC, discusses how she’s leveraged the values embedded in their mission statement to transform their community programs and daily operations to affect the lives of their visitors. She is interviewed by Max A. van Balgooy, co-editor of recently published Reimagining Historic House Museums and president of Engaging Places.

This webinar is part of the Historic House Call webinar series. Organized by the committee of the AASLH Historic House Affinity Community, Historic House Call webinars provide staff and volunteers working in historic house museums the chance to hear from a leading expert on a topic related to historic sites and ask questions about that topic. Historic House Calls are presented quarterly at no charge for AASLH members.


DATE: April 23, 2020

TIME: 3:00 – 3:30 pm EASTERN (Remember to adjust for your time zone)

COST: Free to AASLH Members / $30 Nonmembers
