Engaging the Local Community


Although membership in the Society of Architectural Historians is required to participate in the SAH 2017 Annual International Conference—our first meeting outside North America in over 40 years—the conference program includes tours and events that the public is welcome to attend. Engaging the local community and providing a forum for dialogue are priorities for SAH. These public programs are part of the Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology 2017. If you have questions, please see the FAQ or contact us at info@sah.org or (312) 573-1365.
