The Carriacou Historical Society has been in existence since 26 February 1976. In December, 2009 it was incorporated as a non-profit organization under the Company’s Act of Grenada. The Executive Committee of the society was then replaced by a volunteer Board of Directors consisting of its elected officers and directors.
The society has three standing committees: Museum Committee; Projects and Planning Committee; Finance, Fundraising and Membership Committee. Sub-committees are formed as the board of directors sees necessary. Currently there are three such sub-committees: Community Outreach, Industrial Archeology and The Press.
