Scholarships available to attend 2019 Oregon Heritage Summit, April 25-26

The 2019 Oregon Heritage Summit<https://www.oregon.gov/oprd/HCD/OHC/Pages/Conference.aspx>, April 25-26, in Medford will focus on the Culture of Board Engagement. The 2019 Summit will dig deeply into the theory and practice of great boards- what a good board looks like, how every board needs to reflect the individual purpose and community it serves, and how organizations can build and sustain a strong board team. More than just listening and learning, this session will provide immediate, practical advice on how to make your board stronger, more resilient, and more effective in your community.

Scholarships are available to provide financial assistance to heritage groups that send two or more representatives (at least one must be a board member) to attend the Oregon Heritage Summit in Medford. Scholarships will be reimbursable and offered on a first-come, first-served basis, providing up to $300 per organization. Funds may be used to cover costs associated with attending the Summit such as registration, lodging, transportation, and meals.

Registration for the summit will open in mid-February. Organizations can apply for this scholarship before registration opens.

For complete requirements and eligibility, access the scholarship link: 2019 Heritage Summit Scholarship<https://www.oregon.gov/oprd/HCD/OHC/docs/2019_Heritage_Summit_Scholarship.pdf>

Cemetery grant project featured on the Oregon Heritage Exchange Blog

Recently, Oregon Heritage opened up several grants for application, including the Historic Cemeteries Grant<https://www.oregon.gov/oprd/HCD/FINASST/Pages/grants.aspx>. The latest post features the Salem Pioneer Cemetery, a 2017 Historic Cemetery Grant recipient, and how they used the grant to assess their historic cast-iron and wrought-iron fences and create a Metal Craft Repair, Treatment, and Maintenance Plan for the cemetery. Check out the full story here<https://oregonheritage.wordpress.com/2019/01/30/iron-fences-repair-maintenance-plan-at-salem-pioneer-cemetery/>.

Looking for some data to back up your museum grant application?

Heritage organizations in Oregon have the opportunity to borrow data loggers (to monitor temperature and humidity) and light meters through the Oregon Heritage MentorCorps<https://mindyourcollections.org/> program to monitor their collection and exhibit environment. For those that are applying for grants to improve their collection environment, getting some baseline information and including it in grant applications can be a good for proof of need. This is a free program offered by Oregon Heritage<https://www.oregon.gov/OPRD/hcd/pages/index.aspx>.

To learn more about the equipment lending program visit here<https://mindyourcollections.org/equipment-lending-program/>. To learn more about the Oregon Heritage MentorCorps program contact (503) 986-0671 or email Katie.Henry at oregon.gov<mailto:Katie.Henry at oregon.gov>.
