Free Resources from the AASLH Annual Meeting



Dear Members and Colleagues,

True to our theme, this year’s Annual Meeting sessions showed that AASLH members have committed to constantly evolve and embrace new opportunities. Though there is still a lot of work to be done, this was a week of challenging the assumptions that have served us to this point. I know those of you who didn’t attend are also working hard to improve the field, so I wanted to make sure you got access to some of the great resources from this year’s Annual Meeting.

Give and take throughout the conference sessions was fantastic this year. We’ve organized all the best Twitter takeaways/notes by session on the Official 2016 Annual Meeting Storify so you can get in touch with those speakers if you want to know more. We recorded 13 sessions this year as well as the 2016 Meeting of the Membership, our keynote addresses by Tom Sugrue and Mary Wilson. You can access them for free here or on our SoundCloud account or iTunes account. Please share them far and wide!

You can see and download all our professional photos taken at the event on this Google Drive folder. You can download or upload any session slides in this folder.

Many of the comments I personally received about the Detroit meeting were that people felt reinvigorated—and that’s saying a lot after several days of moving between sessions, venues, and dozens of conversations.

I hope I will see you in Austin, Texas, for next year’s conference or online for our annual Online Conference! Our theme for both will be “I AM History.” The call for proposals will be posted soon on the Austin 2017 webpage.

Best regards,

John Dichtl President & CEO American Association for State and Local History
