Welcome to the CONFERENCE of California Historical Societies website. CCHS was founded in 1954 as a federation of historical societies, museums, libraries, and other history-oriented groups and individuals with a common appreciation and love of history. 

CCHS
helps historians, and others who are interested in history, to connect and share information -- joining efforts to preserve records, artifacts, sites, and buildings. This website is the gateway into joining this unique endeavor with other passionate individuals and groups throughout California. The network of sharing is in place and ready for your involvement. 

CCHS
also helps local societies and small museums with skills in management, acquisition, preservation, and restoration techniques. Through its extensive series of workshops, symposiums, and annual meetings, CCHS is delivering what you need to be successful.  

This website is an extension of the CCHS effort. It is your opportunity to join us and learn what others are doing with similar expectations.  We hope you take advantage of what is offered and enjoy our resources. If you are not yet a CCHS member, please join us. Your involvement will make us collectively stronger. You will gain the various benefits available only to members. Our variable membership fee schedule makes a membership affordable and accessible to everyone.

If still not certain that CCHS is right for you, at least consider our mailing list for access to helpful information and to let us know your particular needs.   Sign up today for our mailing list by clicking here. We appreciate your consideration in what CCHS offers and thank you for spending time on our website.

As a Regional Vice-President (RVP) of CCHS, I recommend that all RVPs click on the e-mail word in the upper right corner of the CCHS Home Page and obtain access to NationBuilder, which is CCHS’s administrative network (software) of choice. If you have registered before and have forgotten your password, contact the CCHS office for assistance in retrieving it. NationBuilder is the administrative link to all CCHS & RVP regional information. Each RVP is a point person to individual and society/museum members. Come to the Burlingame 2015 Annual Meeting for additional CCHS NationBuilder operations information & training. RVPs should use this tool. NationBuilder is useful, available and important in making CCHS successful.

I like the new communicative approach from the executive board of representing CCHS as a forward thinking, efficient and effective, must be part of, organization that is dynamic and will make the necessary changes to secure its place in promoting California history.
