Board of Directors

We accept board member applications on a rolling basis.

Responsibilities include:

  • participating in six regular board meetings a year,
  • joining at least one committee,
  • attending and sharing our excitement about History Cambridge events, and
  • and bringing your unique expertise to serve our mission and support our strategic plan.

We’re especially interested in hearing from people who have experience with marketing/communications, graphic design, community organizing, and legal issues.

To learn more or nominate a friend, neighbor, or colleague, email Executive Director Marieke Van Damme at mvandamme@historycambridge.org.


Open internships will be posted here, and are usually announced at the beginning of the calendar year. We have limited capacity and resources to support internships and typically we work with only one graduate student pursuing a graduate degree in history or a related field.

In support of our effort to make history accessible to everyone, all internships with History Cambridge are paid positions.

Interested in helping to develop and fund more internship opportunities at History Cambridge? We’d love to talk. Please get in touch with Executive Director Marieke Van Damme at mvandamme@historycambridge.org.
