Registration for the 2022 Annual Conference is now open!

We hope you will join us in-person in Buffalo, New York, September 14-17.

Come to the conference to see colleagues you may not have seen in person for a couple of years, to make new connections, and to experience the inspiration that comes from being with other history doers.

This year’s theme is “Right Here, Right Now: The Power of Place.” History is powerfully embedded in our sense of place, and so is this year’s meeting!

Experience the Power of Place at our learning sessions, which are presented in nine different formats, including charette, idea studio, roundtable, working group, workshops, and others. These formats are designed for you to engage with other participants and the ideas presented in each session.

Experience the Power of Place at our unmatched evening events at unique locations, including the Buffalo History Museum, Buffalo’s Canalside waterfront, and a street party on Michigan Avenue, the center of Buffalo’s African American heritage.

Experience the Power of Place and Buffalo through tours, including a visit to the JELL-O Gallery, a chance to explore the Seneca Nation of Indians’ Allegany Territory, see the architectural wonders of Buffalo, and many more.
