    The New ALHFAM Website & Membership Management System

    In the fall of 2015, ALHFAM began a new chapter in the way we communicate and interact with our membership. The most obvious change is visible through our redesigned and reorganized website. But the really big change will be the way you, as a member, will be able to manage your own membership profile and the way in which ALHFAM will communicate with you about your membership status. With this new system, we will communicate with you increasingly via email: Your membership reminders, renewal invoices, event registrations, etc., will come directly to you as email communications.

    To help members with this change, and to continue to assist you, we have started a seven-month "training" series about the new membership system and the features of the new website. There will be a link in each upcoming eUpdate that will take you to a Membership Management System Information Sheet, each of which will provide you with the information you will need to know in order work with this exciting new membership system. The FAQ sheet will be continually updated as new question arise.

    Sadly, ALHFAM and the greater museum and agricultural communities have lost
    another influential and beloved friend. Darwin Kelsey, a Cooperstown
    graduate and ALHFAM founder (and our second president) passed away on
    Saturday. Among many other accomplishments, Darwin played a key role in
    creating a historical agriculture program at Old Sturbridge Village,
    developing the innovative Lake Farm Park in Ohio, and more recently promoting
    local agriculture by founding the Countryside Conservancy which promotes
    farmers' markets. He will be greatly missed.

    Darwin's obituary can be found here.
