Federal/State Partnership hosts ten new state humanities council executives

The often annual new EDs orientation hosted by Federal/State Partnership and the Federation of State Humanities Councils gives those of us in Federal/State Partnership the opportunity to get acquainted with the new executives, to introduce them to the staff and work of NEH, to talk about ways we partner with the councils, and to provide a setting for brainstorming and good conversation. One of our goals is to create a cadre of directors who will come to know each other well as friends and colleagues.
