One of the requirements for the Museum Evaluation and Accreditation program is for museums to have a unique mission statement—something that is not interchangeable with other museums. Our current mission statement reads as follows:
Since 1976, the Colchester Historical Society’s mission has been to collect, preserve, and exhibit, for the education and enjoyment of present and future generations, artifacts and documents relating to the social, cultural, and natural history of Colchester County, Nova Scotia.
The staff recently met for a brainstorming session in an attempt to construct a new mission statement and came up with the following:
The Colchester Historical Society operates the Colchester Historeum, a museum and archives located in Truro, Nova Scotia. Using contemporary methods of interpretation, collections management, and education, we continue to preserve and present Colchester County’s past. We strive to offer an authentic and inclusive perspective of local history and culture. Through community and visitor engagement, we encourage conversation, understanding, and meaningful connections between all individuals.
This new mission statement was approved by the Board of Directors on 25 September 2020. As this statement is a part of our by-laws, there will be a motion and vote for the Members of the Society at our Annual General Meeting on November 4th, 2020 regarding the adoption of this new mission statement.
