Our Organization

The Chatham Historical Society, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. Gifts to the society are deductible as provided in federal income tax regulations and as provided in the laws and regulations of some states.

The Chatham Historical Society, a membership corporation under Massachusetts laws, was incorporated in 1926. It is governed by an Executive Board of four officers (Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary, Treasurer), an Executive Director, and a maximum of 16 trustees in addition to the Officers. Officers are elected annually by the membership, except the Chair who is appointed annually by the Executive Board. Trustees serve four-year terms on a rotating basis. This board is responsible for the financial stability of the society, for setting general policy and for appointing Honorary Trustees.

Under the Chair, the Executive Director is responsible for implementing the policies set by the Executive Board and for conducting the day-to-day business of the society and of its Atwood Museum.
