Mark your calendars!  This year’s Annual Conference will feature a tour, luncheon, happy hour, and session devoted to corporate history.

  • Wednesday, Sept. 14
    • Join us at 1:30pm for a tour exploring Ford’s corporate history. On this tour, we will visit the brand new Ford Motor Company Archives and the Benson Ford Research Center.
  • Thursday, Sept. 14
    • Our Corporate History Committee session, Practical Tips on Moving Collections, will discuss what you need to know (or wish you knew) before moving a collection. Our speakers include employees from the Ford Motor Company Archives, Little Caesars Enterprises, and the Historic Ford Estates.  This should prove to be a lively discussion.
    • Our Corporate History luncheon will feature the Carhartt Archive and how it was created, its partnerships, and how it works with the company’s current marketing plans. Come to this luncheon for good food and interesting conversation.
    • In the evening, we’ll hold a Corporate History gathering during History Happy Hour. The location is not yet set, but it’s sure to be a fun time.  This is a relaxed way to talk to fellow corporate history people and share a few drinks.

We look forward to seeing you at the conference!
