Michigan History Alliance™

The Michigan History Alliance™ is a regionalized program 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 and consist of a networking session and a featured speaker. The networking and collaboration portion allows for conversations among a region’s historical organizations, and the speaker will offer further insights on a topic of concern or opportunity.

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.

To 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, the 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.

For more information about the program, contact Assistant Director for Education Programs and Events Robert Myers at (517) 324-1828 or myers@hsmichigan.org.
