The Cabinet

Cabinet members serve as ambassadors for the Oregon Historical Society and promote the case for its support within their communities, businesses, and personal networks. They are young leaders of varied backgrounds who share a passion for history. The goal of The Cabinet is to increase awareness of the Oregon Historical Society with younger, more diverse audiences. By engaging with the Oregon Historical Society through social media, and introducing new patrons to our exhibits, library, publications, and public programs, Cabinet members play a vital role in helping OHS continue to preserve Oregon’s history for future generations.
