Administrative history

This committee was established in order to promote the society and encourage membership growth. Originally, this committee publicized the events planned by the standing committees. During the 1990s the committees often did their own advertising and this committee's focus became the production of the newsletter and maintaining the membership list. Until 1999 Society members received the MMHS Newsletter and the Mennonite Historian as a membership benefit. For a short period, the MMHS Newsletter was published as part of the Mennonite Historian. The association with the Mennonite Historian was discontinued in 1999 when a more substantial quarterly entitled Heritage Posting was initiated to succeed the newsletter.
