There are three membership meetings per year, with lunch and a guest speaker:
- The Annual membership meeting is held in February in Colusa, usually on the nearest weekend
to the founding anniversary of the Society on Feb. 18, 1950.
- A Spring meeting is usually held in Glenn County in late April or early May.
- A Fall meeting is usually held in Tehama County around October.
Several field trips are planned each year, sometimes in conjunction with a regular membership meeting,
and sometimes as a stand-alone event.
Directors and members of the Society are invited to go out into the local communities to promote
the Society at such events as the California Statehood Weekend, genealogical conferences,
fairs, etc. Contact Charles Martin or any other Director if you would like to participate in this
activity. We need more volunteers in this area.
