2006 Annual Meeting LSU Faculty Club. Photgraph by Katie Boardman
2006 Annual Meeting LSU Faculty Club. Photgraph by Katie Boardman

The annual conference is the largest single gathering of the ALHFAMily. Hosted by member institutions in the United States and Canada, the format includes formal papers, interactive workshops, site visits and multiple opportunities for informal discussion. Sharing, fun and learning go hand-in-hand at this meeting, considered by many to be one of the most useful museum conferences available.

The next Annual Meeting & Conference will be hosted by the Rural Life Museum at LSU in Baton Rouge, LA, June 12-16, 2016


Minutes of the 2013 ALHFAM Annual Business Meeting at Hale Farm & Village are available to download. (PDF version).

(3nd Revised Version)

Our members tell us that one of the greatest benefits of membership is the informal networking that our regional and international meetings provide. ALHFAM’s membership committee is trying to make it a little easier for first-timers to meet and mingle with two-timers, long-timers and old-timers.

This is an overview of what to expect, where to be, and what to wear, when. We hope you enjoy this Field Guide to the Annual Meeting . If you find it wanting, please let us know how we might improve it.

This guide is organized by activity, in the approximate order of occurrence.
