Membership Benefits
Networking: EY hosts monthly meetings which include a time for members to report on current projects and upcoming events, and distribute promotional materials.  Meetings are frequently used as a forum to discuss operational challenges, solutions to common issues, and ideas for programs, exhibits and special events.  See the Event Calendar for meeting dates and locations.

Collaborative Marketing: Every two to five years EY prints brochures highlighting Erie County’s heritage-related attractions. The piece includes a map of Erie County showing the locations of Erie Yesterday’s member organizations, and is distributed by EY to interstate welcome centers, VisitErie, the Tom Ridge Environmental Center and other visitor-oriented locations throughout Erie County.

Professional Memberships: As a service to our members, EY maintains organizational memberships with VisitErie, ArtsErie, Pennsylvania Federation of Museums and Historical Organizations, and The NonProfit Partnership.
