Horizon Council

Movers, meet the shakers.

The Conner Prairie Horizon Council is an energetic, young professionals group comprised of volunteers (ages 21-40) who share ideas, engage in strategic planning, fund-raise and take part in special events. And have fun! Their voices are heard and perspectives captured as they help envision the Conner Prairie of the future.

How do Horizon Council members contribute?

Horizon Council members dedicate their time and effort in several ways to shape Conner Prairie's future by:

  • Taking an active interest in Conner Prairie's regular programming and attending at least one public event and volunteering for at least one event per year.
  • Being a public advocate for Conner Prairie by identifying, connecting and cultivating friends and associates as future Horizon Council members.
  • Engaging in social fundraising and organizing special events like History on Tap.
  • Attending and participating in quarterly Council meetings.
  • Providing feedback and a youthful perspective to advance Conner Prairie's mission.
