The museum seeks individuals who can assume leadership positions to assure continuation of the museum's 40-plus year history as an all-volunteer organization. Board members should have experience, knowledge and associations that will help bring resources to the museum that are necessary for fulfilling its historic preservation and educational mission.
Current board members assume functional responsibilities in the management and operation of the museum, ranging from grounds and building maintenance to assuring compliance with our master zoning permit. We seek individuals who can help connect the museum to the community, attract support for its programs, help assure financial solvency, and recruit new volunteers.
Direct experience in, or knowledge of the historical themes the museum focuses on -- local history, the importance of railroads to Northern Virginia and the unique role played by the station during the Civil War -- is not essential but we seek individuals who share our passion for preserving local history.
Board terms are three-year commitments. Officers serve staggered, two-year terms. The board meets a minimum of eight times annually. Participants must be members in good standing of the Friends of the Fairfax Station ($25 annually for an individual membership). The museum provides liability insurance for all board members and officers.
We'll work with your schedule.
