What is SHA?
Developing History Leaders @SHA is the best professional development opportunity for future leaders in history organizations of all types and sizes. Since 1959, the Seminar for Historical Administration has provided history professionals the tools, ideas, and connections that allow them to become effective leaders and managers of history organizations.
SHA is distinctive because it combines depth—three weeks of engagement in deep discussion about issues facing our field; with breadth—discussions led by nationally recognized leaders in the history/museum field.
It brings together leaders at all levels to learn in an intimate, collegial atmosphere. Using case studies, workshops, forums and field trips, Developing History Leaders @SHA is an opportunity like no other. Click here to see an example of the current curriculum.
SHA is for participants in a position of responsibility or are preparing for such a position; a minimum of three years of challenging work experience in the history field is required. Developing History Leaders @SHA occurs once a year, during the three weeks prior to Thanksgiving. Applications for the Class of 2017 (October 28-November 17) are due May 15, 2017: How to Apply.
