With the Generous Support of


Consultants work freelance or in established firms on projects ranging from National Register nominations, to court cases and corporate histories, to advising neighborhood associations, local government, and museums.  With the help of the NCPH Consultants Committee, we have compiled several resources for those seeking consultant or proposal information:

See our NCPH Consultants List for individuals who are members of NCPH and who present themselves as historical consultants. Potential clients/employers are invited to contact them directly to request work proposals, resumes, samples of work, or references.  Also see the Australian Council of Professional Historians Associations, Inc.

NCPHConsultants on Twitter

The Consultants Committee recently launched a Twitter account @NCPHConsultants. If you are active on Twitter, please follow us. Those not using this form of social media can still view the page by visiting

The Committee will use this forum to network with consultants; announce committee events and news; share relevant projects, articles and information; highlight consulting opportunities and resources; and better connect fields of public history and those on the periphery. We aim to increase NCPH’s presence on Twitter and in turn gain a larger national audience for consultants’ concerns, issues and news.


  • “After discussions at the 2013 NCPH conference… I’ve decided to aggregate those resources into a list so that others with similar questions have a ‘jumping off’ point as they start explore the private sector for themselves.”
