An open call for proposals to host our next annual conference
  • Have you ever wanted to gather a large group of living history colleagues at your site?

  • Does your site want a chance to highlight its buildings, collections, and programs to others in the field?

  • Would you like to have all of your living history friends visit your own facility to share information and for fellowship and fun?

The TLHA Board has created a Conference Host Proposal Packet to solicit bids to host the next conference. The document outlines all of the things you would need to know to put a conference host proposal together.  It outlines the responsibilities of the host site, what logistics and assistance TLHA provide.
