AASLH Workshops for Historic Sites

The American Association for State and Local History offers a wide range of educational workshops and professional training that is particularly helpful for staff and volunteers for work at historic sites and house museums–if you know where to look.  I’ve previously mentioned the sessions during its annual meeting but people often forget that it also has half-day and day-long workshops before and after the annual meeting to explore topics in depth.  What most people don’t know is that you can register for just these workshops; you don’t have to attend the annual meeting–a great advantage for local folks!

This year, AASLH is offering 14 workshops, including:

Other workshops have a broader appeal and tackle topics such as project management, encouraging boards to raise funds, community engagement, and emergency planning (one of AAM’s five core documents).  I don’t know all the speakers for the workshops, but those I do know are tops in their field so this training is a bargain.

    Joanna is unable to attend this year (bummer), but the Smith Farm Manager from AHC will teach in her stead — thank you Kelly Whitfield.
