Museum Day Workshop for DeKalb County history groups is planned for Nov. 21.

Partnerships are a key element of the DeKalb County History Center and DeKalb County Nonprofit Partnership’s mission.

These two organizations will host the third annual museum day workshop from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 21, at the DeKalb County History Center, 1730 N. Main St. in Sycamore. All history groups in DeKalb County are invited to attend this free event.

Several sessions are planned, as well as time to meet and network with those involved in the history field. Board members, volunteers and staff are all encouraged to register for this event.

This year’s theme is “Looking to the Future.” Topics include digitization and potential funding opportunities, presented by Advantage Archives and Michelle Donahoe, DeKalb County History Center; WNIJ’s new mobile recording studio, presented by Staci Hoste, WNIJ; and preparing for the future through strategic planning, presented by Alison Costanzo of the St. Charles Heritage Center.

The day will end with a discussion about prioritizing partnership opportunities.

“This is an important event for the local history community,” Michelle Donahoe, executive director of the DeKalb County History Center, said in a news release. “The combination of professional development and networking has a great potential to strengthen local history groups. We face many of the same challenges, and only get stronger by working together.” To sign up for this free program, visit http://bit.ly/MuseumDay_2019.

This event is funded through a grant from the Douglas C. and Lynn M. Roberts Family Foundation. For information, call 815-895-5762.
