Have an interest in History? Want to Contribute to your Local Community? Join the Board!

The Albert County Historical Society is actively seeking people with an interest in local history and the preservation of our past to serve as Members of the Board of Directors for the Albert County Historical Society, which oversees the Albert County Museum and RB Bennett Commemorative Centre.

The Albert County Museum tells the stories of ‘The People of the Tides’ – the human and industrial history of Albert County. The RB Bennett Commemorative Centre highlights the accomplishments of RB Bennett, Canada's 11th Prime Minister 1930-35. The Museum is located in Hopewell Cape, New Brunswick, and consists of 9 buildings from the original Shiretown of Hopewell Cape.

The Board of Directors has four primary functions:

  1. Purpose — establishing and implementing the museum’s mission and vision;

  2. Continuity — providing continuity for managing and implementing the museum’s affairs;

  3. Progress — setting the rate of progress the museum takes in reaching its mission and vision;

  4. Identity — securing community support and appreciation for the museum’s mission, vision,mandate, beliefs and long-term direction.

As a member of the Board you would be required to attend regular scheduled Board meetings (Generally the First Monday of every Month) and to attend the Annual General Meeting (AGM) held once a year in October.

Experience – NO experience is necessary, just a love (or interest in) of history.

The existing board members will be happy to guide you and answer any questions you may have. If you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to contact us. Phone 506-734-2003 or email
