Are you attending the American Association for State and Local History’s Annual Meeting (#AASLH2012) in Salt Lake City? The annual meeting is October 3-6, 2012. I just submitted my registration. I’m even participating in a few sessions. Interested in what I have to say? Check me out at:
- Marketing, Education & Access: Perspectives on Web Resources
- Localizing Difficult Histories (also a part of the online conference)
- Gems in the Rough: Mining Social Media for Local History Information
You’ll also be able to find me 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.
I’m excited. This year’s theme, CROSSROADS: Exploring Vibrant Connections Between People and Place provides ample opportunity to discuss the role historical institutions (and those of us work in them/love them) play communally, geographically and intellectually. Plus – I’ve never been to Utah – BONUS!
If you plan on attending be sure to get your registration in by Friday, August 17, and take advantage of the early bird discount deadline.
Is this 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!
Seriously though, I hope to see you at the Annual Meeting.
