Appointment by the Prescott City Council
The City Council established "Prescott: The Arizona Centennial City Committee" by Resolution #3923-0929 on December 16, 2008, which was superceded by Resolution #3947-0953 on March 24, 2009 to increase the number of committee members.
The Council charged the Centennial Committee with three responsibilities:
- To establish and assist with the development of at least one major project to bring attention to the City of Prescott.
- To encourage and support community groups in planning and engaging in local/City Centennial activities.
- To coordinate with government agencies involved in Centennial planning and project support.
In November 2010, the Centennial Committee's appointment as an Advisory Committee to the City Council was dissolved and the current members were reorganized to work directly under the City's new Department of Tourism.
The mission of the Prescott Centennial Committee is to work with the City of Prescott Department of Tourism to promote, support, and encourage participation in Centennial activities and events in the City which showcase Arizona's rich historic past, inspire appreciation for its growth and development to the present, and promote its sustainable future.
Centennial Ambassadors are members of local chapters of Questers International who are volunteering to serve as the communication link between groups sponsoring Centennial projects within the City and the Prescott Centennial Committee.
Questers chapters are part of a large international group of individuals who are interested in the study, restoration, and preservation of antiques and collectibles as well as the preservation and restoration of historic sites. Questers chapters are located in the U.S. and Canada.
