From staff reports

The Beaufort History Museum has multiple openings for volunteer directors to join its board.

The museum is looking for board members who are civic-minded and share a passion for local history. Due to recent retirements and term expirations, the museum has a specific need for candidates with a strong business and marketing background and/or experience with museum management and operations.

The Beaufort History Museum manages the City of Beaufort’s collection of artifacts, and traces its roots to the 1930s. Its aim is to preserve, promote and interpret the 500-year history of the city and surrounding areas, for the education and enjoyment of both visitors and residents alike.

“We do this not only through the exhibit hall above The Arsenal in the heart of the city’s historic district, but also with a successful lecture series, living-history events and partnerships with other history-minded organizations,” President of the Board Steve Guida said in a release.

The museum is nonprofit, all-volunteer organization, and the board of directors is a working board. “We’re looking for folks who like to roll up their sleeves and help tell Beaufort’s story,” Guida said. In particular, candidates should be able to attend monthly board meetings, serve on committees and help with various events. Most directors commit an average of three to five hours per week to support the museum’s objectives, he said.
