Our Volunteers in Action
It takes a lot of work, time, energy, elbow grease, dedication, and determination to keep our Museum in Motion. We've assembled these photo essays, to share with you some of these activities. [Please be patient while the graphics load; we hope you'll find their detail worth any delay.]
The Board of Directors of the Illinois Railway Museum meets monthly, typically on the second Saturday evening at the Museum's Pullman Library in Union, Illinois. These meetings typically last several hours. Topics on the agenda span the broad spectrum of museum activities, including management and operations of the Museum, budgets and priorities, as well as acquisitions and occasional dispositions of equipment. They include reports and presentations, discussions, occasional controversies, the important and the mundane.
These meetings are open to Museum members, and typically a number of working members attend each meeting. Some attend to make presentations and proposals and reports; most to communicate and coordinate activities and projects, during the breaks and after the meeting. If you are interesting in attending, you can check with any of the Board Members to verify the time and place of the next meeting.
A member of our IRM Photo Team took these candid photos during the Board meeting of January 10, 1998. One IRM Board Member, Harold Krewer, who is also Superintendent of Operations, was unable to attend that meeting.
