Membership

The Endless Mountains Heritage Alliance (EMHA) is always seeking new associate members and providing options for support and involvement with the organization and its many activities and events.

EMHA, the organization that manages the Endless Mountains Heritage Region (EMHR), has been protecting and enhancing historic, natural and recreational assets to revitalize communities in Bradford, Sullivan, Susquehanna, and Wyoming counties since 1988.

Associate members receive advance notice of all EMHA-sponsored activities such as Farm-to-Table events, Susquehanna River sojourns, special presentations and Heritage Region workshops on topics such as grant writing and project development.

Via periodic newsletters, email links to breaking news, an invitation to the annual summer picnic, and an opportunity to vote at the annual dinner meeting in October, associate members are afforded unique opportunities to stay in touch with the organization without a substantial investment of time. Each year, EMHA board members hold brain-storming sessions in their respective counties to which associate members are invited to share their expertise and concerns specific to the counties in which they work and/or reside.

Associate members and sponsor representatives are also welcome to sit in on regular board meetings in a non-voting capacity.

Associate members can pursue a more active role within the EMHR as a member of one of several vital committees that advance EMHA's agenda. Individual members and sponsor representatives are considered invaluable assets by the EMHA. They offer advice, suggest new contacts and strategies, and volunteer in a variety of capacities – without the need to attend bi-monthly board meetings, which are generally held on the first Wednesday morning of every other month. Within a short time, many associate members find themselves wanting to be more involved in the EMHR after gaining a better perspective of the contributions the EMHA makes to the Region.

Annual memberships begin at $35 for individuals and $50 for family memberships. The cost can be shared with an employer willing to match an individual contribution. Business/Non-Profit memberships Range from $100 for organizations with one to 10 employees to $500 for companies and organizations with 250 or more employees.

A complete application, which includes additional options for special donations and endowments can be downloaded here.

Internships

The Endless Mountains Heritage Alliance (EMHA) is currently developing an intern program with the assistance of local institutions of learning seeking opportunities for their students. Owing to the vast variety and scope of projects supported by EMHA in the Endless Mountains Heritage Region (EMHR), students pursuing any number of major or degree can find a suitable niche within the organization.

Opportunities can include a focus on EMHA-sponsored activities such as Farm-to-Table events, Susquehanna River sojourns, special presentations and Heritage Region workshops on topics such as grant writing and project development.

There is often need within the EMHR for technical assistance such as GIS map development, surveying project partner sites, event coordination, communications, and providing presentations on specific topics at EMHA-sponsored events.

EMHR representatives will be visiting area colleges and meeting with internship coordinators and scholastic organizations to establish our brand and potential opportunities for interns.

Internships will be monitored, recorded and documented in accordance with each school's intern policies to help participants fulfill their obligations and receive full credit for their endeavors. The EMHR can also be used for references on resumes and job applications.

It is hoped by EMHA board members that interns, like volunteers, will find themselves wanting to be more involved in the EMHR after gaining a better perspective of the contributions the EMHA makes to the Region and its potential for further development of heritage resources.

A long-term involvement with EMHA in the EMHR is our ultimate goal, but we are here to help the student achive his or her short-term objectives in the meantime.
