Past Is Present
Registration is now open for 2018 Regional Meetings!
Download the brochure for details of each meeting.
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, will connect you to others in the field, and will educate you — so can do an even better job of preserving and sharing your community’s history. Please plan to join us!
Cross-region meeting attendance is encouraged! You can attend your region’s meeting, or any or all meetings in other regions. Please register by the Friday of the week before the date of your meeting.

Registration fee for Alliance members: $30. Non-members: $35. Registration fee includes continental breakfast, lunch, admission fees, and handouts. Reminder: Organizational members of the Ohio Local History Alliance receive the Alliance member discount for all personnel from the member organization.
Bring your historical society’s table-top display to a regional meeting to promote your organization. Reserve free table display space by checking the appropriate box on your registration form. Even if your organization doesn’t reserve display space, one table will be set aside at each meeting for brochures — so bring a stack with you.
Inclement Weather: In the event of inclement weather, a Regional Meeting will be cancelled if the county in which the meeting is being held declares a Level 2 Snow Emergency by 7am the morning of the meeting. Pre-registered participants will be notified via email the afternoon before the meeting if this seems to be a possibility.
