Virtual NCPH 2023: “To Be Continued.”

“To Be Continued.”

We know that some of you were not be able to join us in Atlanta this April for a variety of reasons. Conferences–or at least the NCPH conference–have changed for good, and virtual conferences aren’t going anywhere. While we don’t have the staff capacity to conduct a hybrid conference (with in-person and virtual content happening simultaneously), our follow-up virtual conference is scheduled for October 4-6, 2023.

We’re thinking of it as “To Be Continued:” an opportunity to check in with folks who came to Atlanta and pick up on vital conversations we had there, and bring public historians who couldn’t make the in-person trip into the fold. There is some brand new content best-suited to virtual spaces, and some follow-up sessions based around key themes that emerged at the in-person event. In keeping with the “To Be Determined” theme of the in-person conference, we want to be adaptable and nimble enough to address the field’s most important issues and responsive to the needs of attendees.


Registration for Virtual NCPH 2023 opened on Monday, August 7, and remain open until Monday, October 2. Register at
