Sponsorship deadline: April 9, 2021
CLHO invites you to sponsor our Awards of Merit and Keynotes of Change events.
Celebrating its 70th year, the Connecticut League of History Organizations continues its mission to strengthen the work of those who preserve and share the stories and objects of Connecticut’s past by providing professional development and networking opportunities for institutions and individuals throughout the state. The Awards of Merit program and the Keynotes of Change series are crucial ways that CLHO supports the endeavors of people working in the history field.
AWARDS OF MERIT - Tuesday, April 20th via Zoom, 4:00 to 5:30
This event recognizes and advocates excellence in the history work of exhibitions, publications, and educational programs, as well as exceptional accomplishments by individuals. Following the Annual Business Meeting, the power point presentation of nineteen awards will showcase each project to share and promote the outstanding work happening throughout Connecticut
KEYNOTES OF CHANGE - Series of four weekly sessions in June
Our special June event will feature four talks by experts from around the country on interpreting African-American, LGBTQ, Indigenous, and Latino history. This series is designed to encourage new approaches to telling Connecticut stories at museums and historic sites across the state.
History is a powerful economic engine that connects and engages people with local history activities happening in our towns and cities that make Connecticut a great place to live, work, and visit. Many history organizations are small volunteer-driven sites who rely upon the program resources CLHO offers to further the important functions they provide to their communities.
By sponsoring these events, you will enhance your visibility and outreach to history practitioners throughout the state and cultivate new relationships. And in this particularly challenging year, your sponsorship will help these local history organizations to manage the ongoing effects of the pandemic.
The sponsorship deadline is April 9th.
