Alliance Regional Meetings

2023 Regional Meetings: History as Necessity

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.

Each Regional Meeting includes topical sessions for professional development, site tours highlighting local history work in the region, and chances to seek advice from local peers.

In accordance with the current recommendations from the CDC, masks will be optional at most regional meetings. 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.
