  • Registration discounts for annual AHA conferences.
  • Regular receipt of the AHA newsletter with up-to-date information on employment opportunities, scholarships, fellowships, workshops, specialist symposia, conferences and other events.

The AHA welcomes affiliate membership from scholarly historical organisations which support the objectives and constitution of the AHA. Affiliates of the Australian Historical Association enjoy the benefits of individual membership with the exception of the right to vote and stand for election. Additional benefits of affiliation include:

  • Promotion of your organisation through listing on the AHA website.
  • Publicity of your organisation’s news and events through AHA social media channels.
  • With the agreement of the conference organiser, have access to the AHA annual conference as an affiliated special stream.
