#AASLH2013: 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.

Do you plan on attending this year’s American Association for State and Local HistoryAnnual 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?

I’ll be there!…
