70th Annual Meeting of the League of Local Historical Societies & Museums
May 10, 2024

White River Junction, VT

Supported by the Walter Cerf Community Fund

Celebrating its 70th year, the League of Local Historical Societies & Museums (LLHSM) Annual Conference is the largest yearly gathering of local history and museum professionals in the state. It is a chance to network and learn with colleagues in a supportive environment.

What has changed in the last 70 years for local historical societies and museums and what has stayed the same? A report from the first conference notes that organizations should have “a real story to tell” and emphasized the importance of “attracting the interest of children and young people” which might sound familiar to many of us today. With this year’s theme of “Now and Then” we’ll explore some of the bedrocks of doing local history and ways to accomplish them today, learn more about how we can utilize the 250th anniversary of the US as a rallying point in our own communities, and learn from the experts in our ever popular practical and hands-on sessions.
