February 15, 2007
On January 7, 2007 members of the AHA Council voted to accept the “Resolution on United States Government Practices Inimical to the Values of the Historical Profession,” which was passed one day earlier at the annual AHA business meeting. Ultimately a majority of the Council agreed that it should accept the resolution but should also take the further step of requesting its ratification by a majority of members voting in an electronic ballot, which will take place March 1.
For the next 15 days, from February 15-28, members are invited to participate in a discussion forum to comment on the resolution before the voting commences on March 1. To access the forum, login to membership services.
