Decision on ASCH-AHA Relationship

Elesha Coffman

After all of the discussions and surveys and blog posts, it's finally time for the members of the American Society of Church History to decide on the society's relationship with the American Historical Association going forward. That relationship changed two years ago when the AHA centralized conference registration, which raised the cost of attending the meeting while removing a key reason to pay for ASCH membership. (For the back-story, see my post from April 2015.) Much grumbling about registration costs and an alarming drop in ASCH membership have ensued.

This decision is the topic for the ASCH Extraordinary Business Meeting scheduled for Friday, January 6, from 7:30-9:00 p.m. in the Hyatt Regency Centennial Ballroom B. If you have a stake in this matter, please attend! The meeting is open to anyone at the conference, though only ASCH members will be able to vote. Other major administrative changes for the society are coming soon as well, so stay tuned.
