Each year, 1,000 public history professionals and volunteers gather at the American Association for State and Local History for four days of learning, collaboration, networking, and inspiration. The AASLH Annual Meeting is known for practical sessions, takeaways galore, hallway conversations, unmatched evening events, new life-long friendships, intensive workshops, and the inspiration that comes from being around other history-doers. A complimentary Online Conference runs during the Annual Meeting.
