Michigan History Alliance®

The Michigan History Alliance® is a regionalized program of the Historical Society of Michigan that helps our member organizations preserve and promote history by providing training for their staff and volunteers, fostering collaboration, and sharing information and best practices.

Each regional alliance meets at least twice a year to bring together representatives from HSM member historical organizations in several counties. The Alliance meetings take place in the morning from 9 a.m. to noon and consist of a networking session and a featured speaker. The speaker offers insights on a topic of concern or opportunity, and the networking and collaboration portion allows for conversations among a region’s historical organizations.

Attendance at a Michigan History Alliance meeting is FREE of charge for current member organizations of HSM. Since the Alliance is a benefit for HSM member organizations, membership is required for participation.

Michigan History Alliance DistrictsTo further the educational experience of the Alliance meetings, a separate three-hour History Skills Workshop is offered in the afternoon. Taught by authorities in the field, History Skills Workshops provide in-depth training on such topics as exhibit design, collections management, fundraising, and websites. There is a fee to attend the History Skills Workshops, which are open to members and nonmembers alike and take place from 1 to 4 p.m.
