Annual Meeting Sponsorships

We are currently seeking sponsors for our 2022 Annual Meeting. Sponsorships start at just $250 and offer a range of levels to fit your business.

Why Sponsor?

Sponsorship is a wonderful opportunity to promote your business while supporting Ohio’s local history community. Almost 240 people from 100 institutions attended the 2019 OLHA Annual Meeting, our most recent in-person meeting.

Our virtual meetings in 2020 and 2021 attracted approximately 140 registrations each. 41% of attendees are board members or administrators in their institutions; 27% have curatorial/collections care responsibilities; 22% are involved with education, exhibit development, and interpretation. The Local Historian, the newsletter of the Ohio Local History Alliance, is emailed six times a year to 352 member organizations.
