Storify of the Jan 2017 #AASLHchat: Building Better Boards

aaslhchat jan 24 smallOn January 24, AASLH held our fourth #AASLHchat on Twitter. These monthly discussions are shaping up to be a great way for AASLH’ers to crowdsource new ideas and fresh solutions to challenges facing history organizations.

In September, in the midst of Pokémon Go and Hamilton buzz, we held our first chat on “Incorporating Pop Culture Phenomena into Tours & Programming.” After our Annual Meeting, the second #AASLHchat explored “Issues Facing Emerging History Professionals.” Our last social media meetup of 2016 tackled the tough subject of how history organizations should be “Serving Communities During Difficult Times.”

This week, we kicked off 2017 with a chat on Building Better Boards. Lots of great tips, ideas, and insights were shared. You can see the Storify/transcript here. Make sure to follow AASLH on Twitter so you don’t miss our next #AASLHchat, which will take place in mid-February (date and subject TBD).
