2016 NHA Annual Meeting on July 8

NANTUCKET, MA – The Nantucket Historical Association (NHA) is pleased to announce its 122nd Annual Meeting for members on Friday, July 8, 2016, at 2 P.M. in Gosnell Hall at the Whaling Museum, 13 Broad Street.

Open to all current NHA members, the Annual Meeting is held every year in the month of July for the delivery of reports and conduct of organizational business, as well as the nomination of candidates for election as Trustees by the membership. This meeting provides an opportunity for all NHA members to become familiar with and involved in the organization’s year-round activities and efforts. 

The 2016 Annual Meeting’s featured program is a special lecture from Emmy award-winning filmmaker Ric Burns, titled “Nantucket & a Sense of Place.” Burns wrote and produced Nantucket, the signature gateway film shown daily at the Whaling Museum showcasing the island’s natural beauty and its significant role in global history. It chronicles the vibrancy of Nantucket’s history, from its original Wampanoag Native American population and early Quaker culture, to its international significance as the whaling capital of the world and eventual rebirth as an art and resort colony.

The NHA’s 122nd Annual Meeting will begin promptly at 2 P.M., with doors opening at 1:30 P.M. Members may R.S.V.P. to NHA Membership Coordinator Molly McIlvaine at (508) 228-1894, ext. 116 or email .

The NHA’s 122nd Annual Meeting is presented with the generous support of NHA business members Empire Office and Yellow Productions.
