Enumclaw Plateau History Museum seeking new president

The museum is also looking for volunteers to help keep the museum open to the public.

The following was written by the Enumclaw Plateau Historical Society Museum.

The Enumclaw Plateau Historical Society Museum needs help! The current Museum board president needs to step down for personal reasons, and a replacement is badly needed. While existing board members can carry out assigned tasks, someone with management ability needs to lead the Museum, or it may soon close indefinitely. All Museum personnel are volunteers.

The Museum is also looking for volunteer docents to operate the Museum during public hours.

The president’s position should be taken on with intent to hold it for several years to provide continuity. What is required is a determined commitment to keep Enumclaw’s fine Museum operating, as it is a valuable community asset which we cannot afford to lose. Depending on qualifications, the position is expected to require one or two days per week of effort.

Ideally, candidates should have some or all of the following qualifications:

1. At least limited knowledge of Enumclaw history:

2. Some contact/familiarity with local community civic and political leaders:

3. Ability to delegate and coordinate tasks among other board members and docents:

4. Some interest/experience in periodic public engagement and fund-raising.

Most of the above qualifications can be developed further through on-the-job experience, working with the other museum volunteers.

If you want to contribute to the good of Enumclaw by teaching the young and old alike about their local history and further connect to your local community, this is the position for you.

Persons considering this volunteer position or seeking additional information should contact Ray Miller-Still at 360-802-8220 or rstill@courierherald.com.
