March 17, 2017 – Revolution 250 Adopts New Governance
At a meeting held at the Shirley Eustis House in Boston, a new memo of understanding was adopted by Revolution 250. This new agreement more formally outlines the governance for the group and establishes the Massachusetts Historical Society as the fiscal sponsor for the group. This understanding will allow Revolution 250 to act as a part of a nonprofit organization, allowing the group to accept donations and grants. At the meeting, Robert Allison was elected Chair, Herb Motely was elected vice-chair, Susanne Taylor was elected secretary, and Gavin Kleespies was elected treasurer. The meeting was attended by representatives of many cultural and historic organizations.
