      Subject: [AASLH Hist House Mus] AASLH Call for Proposals

      Deadline for Proposals for 2007 AASLH Annual Meeting is November 17
      The American Association for State and Local History (AASLH) is pleased to 
      announce its 2007 annual meeting will be held in Atlanta, Georgia, September 5 - 
      8, 2007. The theme for this meeting is RELEVANCE=The Bottom Line. The program 
      committee intends to emphasize the necessity to make our historical societies 
      relevant and important to the communities we serve, both through the educational 
      services we provide as well as practices we utilize to make our organizations 
      financially sustainable.
      The program committee believes the richness of the theme can be expressed in a 
      number of ways. Accordingly they are seeking session proposals that: (1) explore 
      how we respond, as an industry, to our visitors' interests; (2) identify subject 
      matters and delivery methods to appeal to our audiences as being relevant to and 
      important in their lives; (3) elaborate on the variety of ways to achieve 
      relevance for diverse audiences; (4) highlight best examples of projects and 
      institutions that have exhibited greatest appeal to visitors as well as donors; 
      and (5) identify best management practices to assure our organizations will 
      achieve long-term financial stability.
      Proposals will be accepted in one of the following six formats: panels, 
      workshops, roundtables, point/counter-point, laboratories, or critical issues 
      forum. Each session must have a chairperson responsible for finding other 
      panelists and coordinating logistics. All chairs must be affiliated with an 
      institutional member or be an AASLH individual member. Topics for sessions 
      should fall into at least one of the categories listed on page one of the 
      proposal form.
      Proposals must be submitted on a Call for Proposals form. You may submit the 
      form via e-mail, fax, or mail. Click here (http://www.aaslh.org/documents/2007CallForProposals.pdf)
