Local History is America's History
2019Annual Meeting & Conference

Ohio Local History Alliance in partnership with the Society of Ohio Archivists
October 4-5, 2019
Crowne Plaza, Dublin, Ohio

Once again, the Alliance has partnered with the Society of Ohio Archivists for a dynamic two day program. This year, we're excited to offer a full track of American-Indian related sessions, anchored by a keynote address from Nekole Alligood of the Delaware Nation and a pre-conference workshop on NAGPRA, sponsored by Ohio Humanities. Join us for over thirty sessions covering timely topics like commemorating the centennial of women's suffrage, what to do with collections that reflect attitudes that are now offensive, do living history, diversify your board, and much more. Networking opportunities will abound! Questions? Contact the Alliance at 614.297.2538 or ohiolha@ohiohistory.org.

Online registration closes September 20, 2019.
