Call for Board Members

The Edmonton and District Historical Society (EDHS) is seeking nominations for Board members.

The Society is a volunteer, not-for-profit organization, with charitable status.

Our aim is to promote and preserve the history of the Edmonton region, through the hosting and promotion of historical and educational events and programs, including our Speakers Series and the annual, week long Historic Festival and Doors Open Edmonton.

Board terms are two (2) years, to a maximum of eight (8) years service. The Board is made up of 11 members, including an executive – President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer – a Past President and six (6) Directors. The Board is operational in nature, with members taking on committee work ranging from event planning to budget development and grant writing to governance and publications.

Please see our website,, for more details, including our chapter status with the provincial agency, the Historical Society of Alberta (founded in 1907).

Should you be interested in serving, please submit your resume and/or letter of interest, citing your credentials; previous board experience (volunteer or otherwise) is considered a definite asset, albeit, not a necessity.

These are volunteer positions – no remuneration is provided, though relevant expenses pre-approved by the Board may be reimbursed.
