Premiere Membership

Premiere Membership consists of organizations and entities that have received EMHR grant funding in the past and have also become members of the Heritage Region. As of 2018, we require that any grant applicant be a member of EMHR, as membership dues play a major role in ensuring it can continue its mission. One benefit to being a Premiere Member – aside from being listed on this website and recognized at EMHR’s annual meeting – is that any board or staff members of those Premiere Member organizations can join EMHR at a discounted rate ($5 discount for individual membership and $10 discount for family membership).

"The significance of the region lies not in a few individual landmarks of national merit, but in hundreds of local resources knit together into a single, richly textured regional blanket."
