The Agricultural History Project is staffed almost exclusively by passionate volunteers, including the position of our CEO. We have a board which consists of about 20 members, including a president, secretary and CFO. Beyond the board, we have several committees who make this organizations success possible. Anyone from the community is welcome to join a committee that they’re interested in being a part of. We make plans, recruit help and resources, and have ongoing projects to improve our facilities, exhibits and events.
