The Western Massachusetts Historical Commission Coalition

The Western MA Historical Commission Coalition (WMHCC), organized in 2014, meets 2-3 times each year and offers opportunities for members of local historical commissions and other historic preservation advocates to network and explore current challenges and successes in the field. Meeting locations are rotated within western MA.
