Historical Societies Network Committee

The Historical Societies Network Committee has been established to provide a conduit between Council and municipal Historical Societies.

The Network provides an important forum for collaboration, idea generation, and a point of reference for identifying municipal-wide emerging issues and opportunities regarding history and heritage within the City of Kingston that impacts member groups.

The Network has a purely collaborative and consultative focus. This means that the Historical Societies Network Committee does not have any financial delegation or decision-making capacity.
