Like most organizations, the Wood County Museum has had to think differently this year in response to COVID-19. The annual board election brunch has been canceled, but we want to give our members the opportunity to still participate and have a voice.
You can choose to vote by mailing the ballot from inside the newsletter, or choose to vote using an electronic form. This is a new procedure for the Wood County Museum, but we are excited to offer this election to our entire membership.
