As a reminder, the 2002 Local History Survey found that 77 percent of Minnesota's local historical organizations responding to the survey, belonged to at least one professional development organization. The most prefered at that time was Minnesota Alliance of Local History Museums followed by the American Association for State and Local History. Since then the economy forced us all to make some tough choices in 2003-2005. Did your memberships in professional development organizations survive cuts?
