About RHS Governance
The Redmond Historical Society (RHS) is a membership organization operating under the Non-Profit Corporations Act in the state of Washington. Authorizing documents include:
Charitable Organization approval, issued by the Washington State Secretary of State
RHS Bylaws, as amended and approved by the membership
The Internal Revenue Service Letter of Recognition as a 501 (c)(3) Non-Profit entity
The RHS is not among the City of Redmond's boards and commissions, nor a city department, but we do receive funding and in-kind support from the City and in turn, work closely with the City.
The affairs, policies and property of the corporation are managed by a Board of Directors and its Executive Committee consisting of the Elected Officers and appointed Directors at Large.
The operation and management of the day-to-day affairs of the Society are under the control of the Executive Committee. The work of the Society is carried out by a number of standing committees assisted by staff.
Our finances are public records and may be viewed at the office.
