Many organizations are now considering how to capture and highlight their own history and notable accomplishments. This may range from a small lobby display to a dedicated space with exhibits and videos. Are you considering digital archives, saving memorabilia, dedicated history web site, oral histories of notable partners or professors? N.D. Illinois Court Historical Association VP and Archivist Gretchen Van Dam will discuss how the court’s historical association went from a luncheon get together group to a 501(c)(3) non-profit with a dedicated museum space and the lessons learned from that journey. Then spend some time touring the Court History Museum!
