GHHN’s program services are local, regional and statewide. We deliver resource assistance and professional “Handling History” and “Let’s Talk About…” workshop training for heritage keepers who collect, preserve and interpret in a diversity of uncommon community settings. “Handling History” programs are led by a changing faculty of consulting conservators and curators to meet identified collections care, professional development and policy needs. From 1994 to 2012 nearly 2250 museum and historical agency participants from over 150 institutions have received hands-on collections management training that increases the capacity of institutions to benefit directly from professional development for individual personnel. GHHN presents a series of Museum Educators Roundtables, addressing interpretation and public audience evaluation for educators, docents and directors; GHHN administers Documentary Heritage Program services to repositories in 9 counties of the Hudson Valley for the New York State Archives, speaking to shared concerns and building collaborative opportunities between museums and research repositories with like collections but different methods of work. Since 2003, GHHN has presented community preservation programs in the form of Stone Strategies Workshops for the documentation & preservation of Historic Cemeteries.
