Douglas County Historical Society (DCHS) is pleased to announce that Cassandra Zywiec has been appointed to the new Community Outreach Manager position DCHS has created to facilitate the continued growth of the organization.  As Community Outreach Manager, Zywiec will lead the marketing and public relations efforts of the Historical Society in a way that prioritizes creativity, community participation and continual analysis/iteration of programs.  Some of the main priorities of this position are to continually research and apply new forms of community engagement to invite active participation with the DCHS mission and to develop and execute additional educational programming that engage the community of Douglas County, Nebraska.

Cassandra Zywiec, employed by DCHS since December of 2011, was promoted from her former position of Guest and Administrative Coordinator at the Douglas County Historical Society.  Zywiec’s first development with DCHS is a new series of programming focusing specifically on history-based authors – both fiction and non-fiction.  The title of the new series is A Page from Our Past and will be held the fourth Tuesday of each month in the evening.
