Call for Site Host Proposals (2022)
The Joint Planning Team is seeking proposals for a theme and location for a Tri-History Conference in June 2022. Presenting a proposal is not a commitment to making the conference happen, but the Team expects proposers to participate in and assist with planning and implementation. For additional information about what is involved in hosting the Tri-History conference, please contact the Director of Operations of the Historical Society of the Episcopal Church.
The Tri-History Conference, held every three years, is co-sponsored by three historical organizations of the Episcopal Church: Episcopal Women's History Project (EWHP); Historical Society of the Episcopal Church (HSEC); National Episcopal Historians and Archivists (NEHA). Attendance varies from 50 to 100 participants.
The Conference purpose is to examine the unique heritage of the Episcopal Church within the boundaries of a selected topic area. Conference activities often include presentations, academic papers, archival workshops, organization board and membership meetings, banquet, worship and off-site activities. Its length may be three to four days.
The goals of the conference are 1) to honor all three sponsoring organizations with a program that reflects the common areas and various goals of each; 2) to provide a setting for introduction of new scholarship on a given topic area; and, 3) To provide an (inter-)national conference with (inter-)national focus while providing for a regional flavor. The conference is designed and implemented by a Joint Planning Team consisting of representatives from each organization and local planners.
Tri-History Conference Host Proposal includes:
Please submit proposals no later than May 30, 2020 to firstname.lastname@example.org. The Joint Planning team will make initial inquiries for a final decision in June 2020.
