SPOTLIGHT ON HISTORIAN
An organization’s elected or appointed historian prepares a narrative account
of the group’s activities at the end of a term of office, which, when approved
by the assembly, will become a permanent part of the organization’s official
In order to accomplish this correctly and accurately, the historian should be
well-versed in the historical files (or scrapbooks) of the group, should be
qualified to write the historian’s report or narrative account, should be aware
of any additional activities prescribed by the bylaws, and should be prepared
to pass-on files to a successor.
All of these activities are covered in this download with detailed suggestions,
especially, on how to write the historian’s report (including three detailed
sample templates to use as guides for this task). If you’ve never been a
historian before, this document is for you.
The Spotlight series of booklets present essential information on specific topics, supplementing easy-to-read information with practical advice not found in parliamentary authorities. These booklets are great resources for members who are newly elected or appointed to an office or committee.
