2015 Career Fair: Mentors Needed!
Sunday, January 4
New York Hilton, Americas Hall II
Mentors Needed! Fill out the form on the Job Center page. The Career Fair introduces job candidates and students to mentors from various career paths. Mentors will provide informational interviews and guidance in the transition from history studies to a history career.
Teacher-Student Group Rate
To nurture interest in history among students and to encourage their mentors, the AHA is again offering special discounted registration rates for high school and undergraduate teachers who are AHA members and who are accompanied by small groups of their students. For the first time, the special rates are also being extended to teachers in graduate schools who are AHA members and are accompanied by their pre-candidacy graduate students (that is, graduate students who are in the early stages of their program).
Sneak Peak: 2015 NYC Tours
The Local Arrangements Committee will organize a series of tours highlighting the historical resources of New York. A complete list of tours including times and ticket prices will be posted when registration opens in the fall.
Annual Meeting Communities Forum

Members can simply visit the annual meeting discussion group, propose a session, or connect with other members looking for fellow panelists.
