    The theme of the meeting is "Breaking Through Barriers: Living History in Modern Times," encouraging attendees to "consider how their own museum, business or program has, or will, evolve to remove barriers that may inhibit growth, creativity, access to collections and information, communication, or even survival."

Price includes all sessions, meals, and site visits from June 11-13, and the "Salted, Smoked, and Pickled" Reception on June 10. The nonmember rate also includes a year-long membership to ALHFAM.

    Hit Pay Dirt! Mining Memorable Moments For Visitors!

     Yes, we have the theme and details are coming together for this year's Western Region conference in Carson City, NV, Sept 26-30, 2017.

     Just as miners' carbide lamps brought light into mines & newspapers brought info to those distant mining towns, we'll be discovering new as well as tried & true ways for engaging guests AND fulfilling sites/organizations' missions!

     Put your thinking caps on for workshop topics for this year's theme & areas of interest (we'll have application information out there in the not-too-distant future).


An organization of people who bring history to life
