The East Tennessee Historical Society (ETHS) Board of Directors invites you to the ETHS Annual Meeting of the Membership on Tuesday, May 7, 2024, from 5:30-7:30 pm¬†at the East Tennessee History Center. Join us for a time for members to come together, greet old friends, make new ones, and to celebrate the region’s history.

We will kick off the evening with official business followed by a special membership address from Dr. Warren Dockter, president and CEO of ETHS. Dr. Dockter will review the last year of activity and share what is being planned for the year to come.

The third annual Cherel B. Henderson Memorial Lecture will follow Dr. Dockter’s address with guest speaker Ashley Howell, Executive Director of the Tennessee State Museum. Ms. Howell will discuss the role of institutions and individuals in preserving the artifacts and sources of state and local history. She will also discuss how the public can continue to engage with our history, as the nation looks to commemorating the Semiquincentennial in 2026


Please note, the Annual Awards of Excellence will not be included in this year’s Annual Meeting and will instead be hosted on Saturday, May 18.
