Volunteering at AFHS

Our volunteers are the lifeblood of our society. We just couldn't manage without all the dedicated people we have doing everything from running the library to setting up new members to organizing audio/visual equipment at meetings. We learn lots, but we also have a lot of fun and enjoy each other's company.


The AFHS is looking to fill a few key positions that are instrumental to our existence. If you see something that you or someone you know could help with, please get in touch with us .


Vice President

Currently we have no VP, which could be detrimental to our existence. The Vice President’s duties primarily include attending meetings, assuming the role of chair if the President is absent, and eventually taking the President’s seat when his/her term has been completed.


This is an extremely important position because the society cannot function without a President, of course.


Chinook Editor

Sadly, our editor is resigning and we will need someone to take his place. Do you have a flair for layout? Are you proficient with formatting documents in Microsoft Word? Got a good eye for spelling and punctuation? Become part of building our award-winning journal.


Produced quarterly, Chinook is distributed to all AFHS members. You will have assistance from proofreaders and some training may be provided.


Fundraiser and Grant-Writer

The Board of Directors wants to bring our society into the 21st century and has big plans a-brewing. We need a boost to the budget to get things rolling and we are looking for someone who has a little (or a lot of) experience in fundraising and writing grant applications. Please let us know if you or someone you know may be interested.


Other positions

We do have a couple other positions that are open, such as Director at Large and Volunteer Coordinator. Our PR Committee would likely appreciate a little help, too.


We need more bright, talented individuals to help us move AFHS into the 21st century and we invite you to join us! Contact us if you can help. Thank you!
