The Dakota County Historical Society seeks new board members for the 2022 calendar year. Interested community members can reach out to the Lawshe Museum at 651-552-7548 to ask questions, or they can complete a board interest statement via the Dakota County Historical Society website. Interested individuals should submit a statement of interest form by Friday, Dec. 17, 2021.
The board of trustees is made up of volunteers who play a vital role in setting organizational policy and helping to preserve, interpret and promote the history of Dakota County. Each board member serves a two-year term and can serve a maximum of three consecutive terms for the organization. As a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, DCHS helps make Dakota County history available and accessible to all.
“This is an exciting time for DCHS because we have established relationships with Dakota County and the communities of South St. Paul, Hastings and Mendota, where our sites are located," said DCHS Executive Director Matt Carter. “In 2022, DCHS is preparing for ADA upgrades and improvements to the Lawshe Museum with new exhibits planned to open in the next three years. Additional partnerships that we hope to build upon to make history come alive include the Minnesota Historical Society, Dakota City Heritage Village, and other strategic partners."
