Annual membership dues are the life-blood of any local organization. At
the Grosse Pointe Historical Society, we rely on dues to keep our doors open.
This year we reviewed the structure of our membership program.The
Membership Committee compiled information for a comprehensive study
of other local historical societies in Michigan.We compared ourselves to
organizations of similar size and mission.
The result of this work is streamlined membership categories and three
additional membership benefits.The first big change is our enrollment in
Time Travelers.This program is available to members in all categories.
Created in 1998 by the Missouri History Museum,Time Travelers is a
reciprocal membership network for historical sites and museums throughout
the United States. Members of the Grosse Pointe Historical Society receive
benefits and privileges at museums and historical sites nationwide.These
benefits may include free or reduced admission, gift shop discounts or
free parking.
The second new benefit to many membership categories is the use of the
Provencal-Weir House for an event.The Provencal-Weir House is a good
venue for birthday parties, showers, client appreciation events and more.
For family memberships, we want to treat your children to a free weekend
workshop called “Second Saturdays” where children participate in creating a
unique craft!
If you maximize your membership, and are sure to capitalize on all the new
perks, you’ll see that membership in the Grosse Pointe Historical Society
pays for itself!
The Grosse Pointe Historical Society recognizes the importance of partnerships
with the community. The Membership Committee with the approval of the Board of
Trustees has initiated the 1823 Society.
