Something to keep in mind before even starting is to decide what to do
with material assets that will undoubtedly begin to flow in as a result
of the formation of the society.  I'm referring to the collections of
paperwork and the like.  Where is it to be stored and made available as
a resource?  I recently have been working on the formation of the DT&I
HS and it has turned into a task of mammoth proportions, so be ready for

the work ahead.  Be certain to register your tax exempt status so folks
may make donations tax deductible.  Also, I recommend following the L&N
HS lead and establishing the collection at a University.  That ensures
the collection will be entrusted to an institution of some permanence,
rather than collecting dust in the Toonerville Choo-Choo Station where
the only guy who has a key is in ICU at a hospital 500 miles away.
Learn from what happened to the C&O HS recently and try to create
safeguards from that happening with PC.  Tom Dixon has shown true grit
in trying bring that group over seemingly insurmountable obstacles.
Good luck.
