Alliance Regional Meetings

Regional Meetings Return In-Person in 2022!

At the heart of the Ohio Local History Alliance’s mission are Regional Meetings. The people you’ll meet and the ideas you’ll gather will inspire you, connect you to others in the field, and educate you — so you can do an even better job of preserving and sharing your community’s history.

We’re excited, and a little nervous, to be planning to hold the regional meetings in person again in the spring of 2022! While the virtual meetings went very well in 2021, the overwhelming consensus of those who attended was that they really wanted to be back in person, so we’re going to do our best to make that happen in March and April of 2022.

In accordance with the current recommendations from the CDC, masks will be optional at most regional meetings. This policy will be announced to all registrants via email before the meeting. Some regions or hosts may choose to enforce universal masking at their meetings, and this also will be communicated to registrants ahead of the meeting date. We ask that you respect each individual’s choice to wear or not wear a mask, in accordance with our Meeting Safety and Responsibility Policy.

If you’re sick, please stay home. Refunds will be given upon request to registrants who are unable to attend due to illness.

Mail delivery to the Ohio History Center (800 East 17th Ave, Columbus) has been slow and unpredictable this February. We encourage everyone to register online to make sure we receive your registration before the meeting. The online registration system accepts checks as a form of payment. If you prefer to mail the paper registration form, please make sure to do so by no later than 8 business days before the meeting.
