Updated: October 3, 2012: Handout materials from the conference are now included in this post.
Updated: September 29, 2012: I'll also be attending (but not exhibiting) at the New England Museum Association (NEMA) annual conference November 7 - 9, 2012 in Burlington, Vermont.
We'll be exhibiting at the annual conference of the American Association for State and Local History in Salt Lake City. The conference starts Wednesday, October 3 and the exhibit hall is open Thursday (9 a.m. - 5 p.m.) and Friday (9 a.m. - 4 p.m.). We'll be in booth #3, near the AASLH booth and Arcadia Publishing.
One of the special events taking place during the conference is the Leadership in History Awards Banquet. The compilation we published after the awards were first announced has been updated to include links, where available, to the organizations and projects being recognized.
A special note for those in the Boston area about a local event taking place the following week: We have been selected to be part of the upcoming Mass Innovation Nights 43 on October 10. Mass Innovation Nights was, itself, an innovative idea when launched in 2009 by Bobbie Carlton. Bobbie was working with the Charles River Museum of Industry and Innovation in Waltham, Massachusetts, and with deep ties to the start-up community, launched Mass Innovation Nights as a way to spotlight startups of all kinds and increase awareness of the museum. Under Bobbie's leadership MIN has grown to be quite an institution, attracting hundreds of people each month —to the point of outgrowing the original museum site.
