As the year 2017 winds down we look back at a year of excellent monthly AKCHO member meetings, which provided members with the opportunity to visit interesting locations throughout the county, along with professional education and networking activities relevant to our sector of the arts and culture community. We also gathered as a group at our Annual Meeting for Members and celebrated and recognized the accomplishments of some of the individuals and organizations within the history and heritage community at our annual Awards Program.

This year we made some changes to the administration and funding of our organization and we now have our first directly paid staff member, who oversees all of the administrative paperwork and communication for AKCHO. We would be unable to provide you with the excellent resources and communication without her expert help.

All of this valuable work relies on the financial support of our members. As we enter into 2018 we invite you to renew your annual membership, or join as a member for the first time. Memberships are now structured differently, with a tiered system that takes into account the size of members’ operational budgets. For your convenience, you can fill out the membership form using our online form, or if you prefer, you can download and mail in the form along with your membership dues.

Thank you for your participation in local history and heritage. We cannot do this work without your support!


Heritage Advisor is published by the Association of King County Historical Organizations as a service to members and those who support its mission. We update our website continually throughout the month, and on the first of every month we e-mail a condensed version of Heritage Advisor to our mailing list – you can subscribe to this service by filling out the requested information in the right sidebar on this page.

AKCHO was established in 1977 to encourage cooperation among historical organizations; promote and encourage the study and preservation of the history and heritage of King County through member organizations, individual members, and the community they serve; and support such preservation efforts through public awareness and understanding of legislative issues.

The Heritage Advisor welcomes submissions of news items, calendar items, and opinion columns from AKCHO members, HA subscribers, and readers. Articles are limited to 300 words and they should have a strong relevance to historic preservation and heritage issues in King County, Washington. Submission of an article does not guarantee publication. AKCHO does not pay for published submissions. All articles are subject to review by AKCHO staff. Please send your article within the body of an email (no attachments, please) to heritageadvisor@akcho.org.

AKCHO welcomes new members year round. Individual memberships are $25, and we have a three-tiered system for organizational memberships, with dues dependent on budget size. For more information and an application form, visit http://www.akcho.org/members.

More than 150 individuals and organizations support heritage work and historic preservation in King County, thanks to their membership in AKCHO. Please join us!
