The SHA Wednesday Workshop: Preview, Renew, or Refresh your Leadership Potential

st paul imageAre you interested in attending SHA but want to try it on for size first?

Or, are you an alum wishing you could revisit SHA?

Well, if you’re headed to St. Paul for the AASLH Annual Meeting next month – listen up!

Tim Hoogland and Stacia Kuceyeski are chairing the SHA Wednesday Workshop on September 17 from 1:30-5 pm.

What’s the SHA Wednesday Workshop all about?

The SHA Wednesday Workshop is an opportunity for prospective SHA participants to experience the SHA learning environment for the first time. The seminar is also an opportunity for SHA alumni to reunite and gain additional professional development in the SHA format they know and love (and probably miss). Begin your conference experience with an active, challenging, and thought-provoking experience designed to develop history leaders. The program focus for this year’s SHA Wednesday Workshop will be working with advisory groups. Sessions and activities will focus on what leaders need to know about developing and sustaining advisory committees using American Indian nations and the GLBT community as case studies. These two distinct, and important, constituencies present opportunities for museums and historical organizations to better meet their missions through sustained advisory relationships. After the SHA Wednesday Workshop, SHA alumni will be available to continue the discussion, answer questions, and share the benefits of the SHA experience for prospective SHA participants.

The cost for this workshop is $45. To add this workshop to your Annual Meeting registration please send an email to  or call 615.320.3203.
