SHA Class of 2012

SHA Class of 2012

We are seeking leaders at all levels – executive directors, curators, educators, archivists, historians, interpreters, marketing and development professionals, and others – who want to improve their knowledge and skills, who want to become better leaders in their own institutions, and who are ready to be part of the larger network of history leaders around the country. Are you a good fit for SHA?

Here is a peek at the this year’s curriculum:

  • Week 1 discussions center on innovative ways to use history to engage audiences and benefit communities.
  • Week 2 addresses organizational reinvention through guest experience, financial models, community engagement, collections, staff, and board.
  • Week 3 will turn attention inward to organizational development: creating a vision, raising money, managing change, leading from the middle, and building teams.

We hope you will consider applying to SHA in 2014. Applications for the Class of 2014 are due May 19, 2014.
