Registration Rates

Registration now open! Discounted rates only available until December 14, 11:59 pm EST.

All US-based historians presenting at AHA sessions must be AHA members, and all participants must register. Because the AHA and MLA annual meetings will both take place at the same time in Chicago in 2019, both associations have agreed to honor each other's badges.
