Annual Meeting and Michigan History Conference

The 143rd Annual Meeting and State History Conference was held
September 22-24, 2017, in Holland, Michigan.

Starting in 2018 our annual conference will be named the Annual Meeting and Michigan History Conference.

The Michigan History Conference moves to a different location in the Lower Peninsula each year (we have a different conference the moves around the Upper Peninsula). The Michigan History Conference celebrates all aspects of Michigan’s history and offers a close-up look at the heritage of the host area. The State History Awards are also presented during the conference. Each year, the Historical Society of Michigan presents a State History Award to those individuals and organizations that have made outstanding contributions to the appreciation and understanding of Michigan history. Learn more about the State History Awards.
