2017 Annual Meeting Wrap Up & Resources

by John Dichtl, President & CEO on

 

 

First of all, thank you. Thank you to our program committee, the host committee and local institutions, our onsite volunteers, speakers, tour guides, and everyone else who contributed so much of their energy to the Austin Annual Meeting.

And thank you to our participants, all 1,012 of you! It was energizing to see so many familiar faces and even more new ones over the course of four exciting days. Your ideas, questions, networking, and enthusiasm made this one of the most dynamic, engaging Annual Meetings that AASLH has had.

I hope you will take the three-minute feedback survey to let us know what you thought of the 2017 conference so we can improve for next year. We experimented in several areas this year and are eager to hear what you think.

Give and take throughout theconference sessions was fantastic this year. We’ve organized all the best Twitter takeaways chronologically on the Official 2017 Annual Meeting Storify so you can relive all the highlights.

You can see and download all our professional photos taken at the event on this Google Drive folder, and I encourage you to upload any of your own photos to this folder so we can share them online.

We recorded 15 sessions this year as well as the 2017 Meeting of the Membership, our keynote addresses by Darren Walker and Professor Jeremi Suri. You can access them for free here or on our SoundCloud account or iTunes account. Please share them far and wide!

I hope you left the Annual Meeting feeling engaged and energized, and that I will see you in Kansas City, MO for next year’s conference! Our theme will be “Truth or Consequence.” Want to present a session or a workshop? Submit your proposal for the 2018 AASLH Annual Meeting.

Please let me, the AASLH staff, or the Program Committee know if you have suggestions for the next conference. And if you haven’t completed the survey for the Austin meeting, please do!

Best regards,

-John
