Eileen Corcoran joins VHS
With over six year of experience working with museums, historical societies, and other cultural organizations, Eileen Corcoran comes to the Vermont Historical Society to further develop community outreach with Vermont’s local historical societies and museums. The community outreach coordinator is responsible for implementing programs in support of community-based heritage organizations throughout Vermont and coordinating the delivery of outreach programs statewide.
Eileen’s experience includes house management with the Town Hall Theater in Middlebury; she was the executive director for the Friends of Vergennes Opera House; and she has served as director of the Vermont Collections Care Program for the VT Museum & Gallery Alliance. Eileen says, “I look forward to working with members of VHS’s League of Local Historical Societies and Museums. We are making plans now to visit and work collaboratively with organizations around the state.” Eileen’s experience with issues surrounding collections care and management, as well as sustainability for nonprofits, will serve her Vermont Historical Society constituents well.
