There are many committees and events that our members can volunteer within our society. We have the following committees that members can join at their pleasure: Archival, Budget & Finance, Education, Library Book, Membership, Newsletter, Publications, Publicity, Research Projects, and Website committees. All committee chairs attend up to six Board meetings per year to give reports and help the Board with new ideas or resolving problems regarding their committees.
The Archival Committee consists of the chair and our society scrapbook collector. The chair is responsible for archiving our important documents and scrapbook. The scrapbook collector takes photos and collects all important information on past society events and updates the society scrapbook.
Budget & Finance Committee
The Budget & Finance committee has three members with a finance related background. They review all financial and legal issues at the Board’s request on an as needed basis. This committee includes the treasurer and two members. They meet several times per year to review budgets and other financial matters of the society.
The Education Committee meets two to three times per year to organize new classes and workshops for the new year. This committee includes a chair and several members interested in educating our members and the general public.
Library Book Committee
The Library Book Committee recommends books to our libraries at Fort Collins, Loveland, and Windsor. They review the latest genealogy and family history books and make recommendations of the most popular books to the genelaogy librarian at these lobraries.
The Membership Committee meets several times per year with other committees as needed to attract visitors and new members. Several committee members attend all general meetings to sign-in members and visitors. The chair updates monthly membership and visitor reports for the Board.
The newsletter committee is responsible for the bi-monthly newsletter editions and membership directory. The committee includes the newsletter editor, publisher, and distribution volunteers. They meet two or three times a year to review the newsletter and membership directory. The newsletter editor creates the newsletters and sends the digital editions to members, while the publisher does the newsletter design and layout, and the distribution team mails the printed newsletters to members.
The Publicity Committee is responsible for notifying the members and the public of all society events. They send email notifications to members of all events, poster and flyers to libraries and other institutions.
The Publications Committee is responsible for printing and sending brochures to the other committees, filling orders for society publications to libraries or other institutions, and displaying our various society items at our general meetings to lend out to our members.
Research Projects Committee
The Research Projects Committee creates new research projects every year. They are currently working on researching and indexing several smaller cemeteries in Larimer County. Eventually, another publication will be created for sale to other societies and libraries.
The Website Committee consists of our webmasters and members interested in promoting our website for educational purposes and marketing of our society website and Facebook page. They meet several times per year to review add new webpages or new programs as required by the Board.
