Every month, the Wilmington History Society (WHS) has a gathering downstairs at Chelsea Tavern involving a topic, a speaker and a Q&A (plus networking and a happy hour).

“I’m truly convinced that Wilmingtonians really are hungry for some of that old-school community,” said Wilmington historian and WHS cofounder Nathan Field, shortly after launching the first event last year. “They just need to become aware of the opportunities that are out there.”

On Wednesday, March 27, from 6 to 8 p.m., things will go a little bit differently. Instead of a presentation, the time will be spent with an open discussion based on a single question: What exactly is Wilmington’s value proposition?

Field and his WHS cofounder Benjamin Rapkin, along with 11 previous speakers, want to look at Wilmington as a business, and address hard questions about why the city continues to struggle, despite its strong sense of community,  rich history and prime location. They will be looking to find answers to questions such as:

  • What changes can be made today?
  • What are the highest priority challenges to overcome?
  • Where can we make the biggest impact?

The event is free and open to anyone who wants to participate.
