Welcome to the Community Center of the American Association for State and Local History!

Here you can have discussions and share resources with fellow history practitioners across the field. Most of our communities are informal Affinity groups that provide resources, advice, and networking to those interested in particular aspects or niches of public history work. Each Affinity Community is led by a committee of AASLH member volunteers who communicate regularly to steer the agenda, plan events, maintain a web presence and resource library, and facilitate communication with the wider group, with AASLH staff and Council, and with the field as a whole.
