The CONFERENCE of California Historical
Societies was founded in 1954 as a federation of historical societies,
museums, libraries, and other history-oriented groups and individuals.
CCHS helps historians, and others who are
interested in history, to connect and share information -- joining efforts
to preserve records, artifacts, sites, and buildings. CCHS helps local
societies and small museums with skills in management, acquisition,
preservation, and restoration techniques.
CCHS offers members an optional liability
insurance policy designed to meet the special needs of history
groups at low group rates. Members may also participate in various
symposia and workshops offered several times throughout the year in
locations alternating between Northern and Southern California.
In addition to all of the features above,
members receive a year's subscription (3-4
issues) of the California HISTORIAN magazine. The publication
offers how-to articles, previously unpublished historical material, book
reviews, and news, views, and activities from every corner of the state.
Associate memberships are available.
Associates receive the magazine and may participate in
symposia and workshops.
In addition to membership, please
