At its meeting today, the AHA Council approved applications for affiliation from the National Coalition for Independent Scholars and the Toynbee Prize Foundation, joining 114 other affiliated societies. Affiliates receive rooms for session and other functions at the AHA meeting (at no charge), are listed in our online Directory of Affiliated Societies, and are also invited to submit information to the “Affiliate News” column in Perspectives on History.
They Council also rescinded the suspension of affiliate status for the Ukrainian Historical Association, which was imposed in June 2009. Under our affiliation policy, we suspend affiliates that fail to sponsor a session at our annual meeting, and update or confirm information in the Directory over a five year span. Suspended affiliates are removed from the Directory and no longer able to participate in activities at the meeting, pending a request for reinstatement.
