November 2016 Update to the Board

Regional Representative:  Susan Reckseidler

Meetings/conferences held and/or scheduled since last report:
Our first Regional Conference was held at the Innisfail Historical Village on August 27 & 28, 2016. Twenty-three people attended the day and a half conference which offered a good array of sessions on topics including costuming for small sites, interpretation techniques, social media, and collections research. Participants also had the chance to explore the host site and observe some of their programming activities. With the support of a municipal economic development grant, the Innisfail Historical Village was able to off-set many of the costs resulting in a $1133.75 surplus. A silent auction was also held during the Saturday evening dinner, which raised $333.00. I would like to acknowledge the support of ALHFAM member Anna Lenters and her staff for helping to make our first regional conference such a success.

Upcoming Meetings/conferences planned: dates, theme, location and any other information:
Nothing confirmed, but staff from the Western Development Museum expressed interest in possibly hosting a future regional conference.

Other activities or achievements:
Western Canada Region Facebook page has  120 followers. Jessica Glombick has come on as a co-administrator for the page.

Number of ALHFAM members in the region at last semi-annual report: 19

Issues/concerns/other information you’d like to communicate to the CORN chair and/or ALHFAM board:
Succession planning continues to be a challenge as I have yet to find someone interested in taking on the position of Co-Rep. I spoke with some individuals at the Regional Conference who may be interested in the future, but are not willing to commit yet.
