Earlier this year, I was appointed municipal historian for the town of Coventry. I've spent some time getting up to speed, meeting with the local cognoscenti, and trying to get a handle on the position. But of course there's so much more to do and prepare.
To that end, I wonder whether there are any forum in which the state's municipal historian take the opportunity to gather ideas, compare notes, and share resources. Obviously H-Connecticut has the potential to do much the same, but at present it has more the feel of an announcement board than a discussion place. I hasten to add that I very much appreciate the folks who organized the group (and indeed, was an H-Net editor myself about 20 years ago), and wonder if some of the current appointees are already here.
Anyway, I'll leave it there for the moment. Just hoping to get a sense for how the currently-appointed municipal historians might already be connecting, and perhaps develop new events or gathering places for improved communication going forward.
