Let’s Hang Out at #AASLH2012 in SLC

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.

  1. Anyone going for the first time?!?! My advice – make sure to go to at least one evening event! They’re a lot of fun and it is a really good and easy way to network. Other advice, go to the SHA Reception. It’s an A-Ma-Zing program and you meet a lot of great people who are very involved in their institutions, AASLH, and the museum field – again, great networking. Last bit of advice – HAVE FUN – and Tweet about it! @NURFCdina – thanks a lot @MuseumMinute

  2. I hope to see everyone at the conference. It is always a great time to meet new people and reconnect with people in the field. I also encourage everyone to sign-up for the Educators and Interpreters Breakfast & Roundtable on Thursday, October 4th. You will need to pre-register for this session. thanks, @NURFCrich

    • Nice plug for the Educators & Interpreters Breakfast/Roundtable, Rich! Which sessions are looking forward to attending?

  3. Wish I could get out there for the conference, SLC is a good city. Especially with the largest cataloged genealogy library on site. I believe thats correct. Anyways, to those who can go, sounds like you all will have a great time with so many activities to be involved with to network with others!
