SHA Wednesday Workshop in Austin

Conny Graft workshop at Cliveden 2016

The AASLH Annual Meeting will offer “The SHA Wednesday Workshop” on Wednesday, September 6, 2017 from 1:30 to 5:00 pm.  Workshop attendees will experience the model of professional development practiced at Developing History Leaders @SHA.Tim Hoogland (SHA 2008) and Conny Graft (the longest serving faculty member in SHA history!) will address topics and themes centered on evaluation including data collection and building a culture of evaluation in your institution that guides programs and improves fundraising. Using the group work and discussions that are the hallmark of SHA, we will address challenges in visitor evaluation and how to measure impact through outreach and educational programs.

Fifteen people have registered so far and more are welcome, both SHA Alums who are looking for a chance to work with their colleagues and for people who are interested in SHA but first want a brief taste (it’s hard to commit to three weeks, so encourage them to attend).  Registration is $25 and more details are available at http://about.aaslh.org/conference.
