Supporting your community Museum can be a rewarding endeavor. The Museum is seeking enthusiastic residents to become Board Members; to join a friendly team dedicated to preserving the history and heritage of Strathcona County.  Share your skills and experiences to help us grow.

Our Board Meetings are held 9 times a year, with a total time commitment for meetings of about 18 hours a year.  Attendance or assistance at special events or committee meetings may also be required during the year.

This is an excellent way to give back to your community. Whatever your age, interest, or ability, we have a job that you’ll enjoy. Sign up with a friend or on your own. Meet new people and work in a stimulating and educational environment. Our volunteers, aged 12 to 90 have logged over 103,000 hours since the opening of the Museum in 1997.
