Guide to Receptions at the Annual Meeting

Annual meeting receptions provide you with numerous opportunities to connect with your peers and exchange ideas in an informal setting. Growing your professional network is an important part of the meeting, and with almost 5,000 historians attending there is no better place to start.

Our First-Time Attendee Guide has hints and tips on how to get the most out of the networking opportunities.

Many societies host receptions, so there is sure to be something to match your area of interest. Be sure to check the online meeting program to see the most up-to-date listing. See below for a listing of receptions hosted by the American Historical Association:

You can get started early at the Conference on Faith and History Breakfast Reception, make connections at the Reception for History Bloggers and Twitterstorians, or enjoy a guided tour at the Museum of the City of New York Evening Reception and Exhibition.

Connect with your professional colleagues at the K–12 Reception, Reception for Two-Year Faculty, or the Public Historians’ Reception.

And we invite all annual meeting attendees to the Welcome Reception.
