Board of directors

WRHS Board of Directors and officers

The WRHS Board of Directors is elected by its members and each director serves a two-year term. Every member in good standing is eligible to vote and hold an office.

One of the attractions of serving on the WRHS Board is that sometimes you get to go places and do things that others can't. The photo at right shows the observation deck & parlor of Wabash Railroad business car #6, stored at the Monticello Ry. Museum. The WRHS Board has often held its meetings in this car: either here in the parlor, or in the cars' luxuriously-outfitted dining room.

The current WRHS Board of Directors officially took office in January 2017, and will serve until January 2019.
