The University City Historical Society, which is a group dedicated to encouraging good stewardship of historic properties in the University City area of West Philadelphia, is seeking new Board members.
Responsibilities include attendance at monthly meetings (every second Wednesday of the month), participation in at least one committee, and a willingness to develop productive ways to reach out to our community and advocate for respect and protection of historic properties.
We want to hear your ideas on how to make our organization even more effective at preserving our neighborhood's amazing historic character. Board service will allow you to contribute in a variety of areas including, but not limited to: strategic planning, event planning, community outreach, architecture, grant writing, history, building technologies and trades, marketing, communications, and social media. If you have an interest or expertise in any of these areas and are looking for ways to make a meaning contribution to a neighborhood like ours, we are looking for you!
We deal with a mixture of serious and fun events and are looking for current members (or soon-to-be members) who are willing to volunteer some time and effort towards helping with the oversight and management of our organization.
Please contact our Nominating Committee at UCityHistoricalSociety@gmail.com.
