#AASLH2013: See You in Birmingham!

Do you plan on attending this year’s American Association for State and Local History Annual Meeting  September 18 – 21, in Birmingham, Alabama?

This year’s conference, in partnership with the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience, is sure to be informative, enlightening, and inspiring. The theme? Turning Points: Ordinary People, Extraordinary Change.

Fifty years after hundreds of young people stood solid for freedom. Fifty years after King’s “Letter from Birmingham Jail” articulated principles of nonviolence. Fifty years later we ask: If history is the example, the provocateur, and the context – how do we best use it today?

Registration for the annual meeting, #AASLH2013, is now open. Get your registration in by Friday, July 26, and take advantage of the early bird discount.

I’ll be there! And I will be presenting again (just once this year, four sessions wore me out last year). Not only can you catch me presenting on “Social Media Madness,” I’ll also be mixing and mingling at the Developing Leaders @ Seminar for Historical Administration (SHA) Reception. Have questions about SHA? On the fence? Interested but hesitant? Find me and let’s chat.

Will this be your first time attending? Do you have questions?

If you’ve been to the annual meeting before, what advice would you offer to first time attendees? Want to share a plug for your session? This post is providing comment opportunities for everyone!

I hope to see you in Birmingham!

    Incoming SHA Alumni Committee Chair, Jamie Glavic, shared the following post about AASLH’s 2013 Annual Meeting on her blog, Museum Minute. Much like Jamie, we hope to see you there – especially at the Developing Leaders @ Seminar for Historical Administration (SHA) Reception! Partners, instructors, and alumni will be on hand to chat about the program and answer any questions you may have (it’s also pretty fun!).

    Don’t forget to get your registration in by this Friday, July 26, to take advantage of the early bird discount.
