Conference Connections 

Our Conference Connections program connects first-time NCPH attendees with experienced conference-goers who will help newbies learn the ropes of conferencing, and our conference in particular. Help us foster a welcoming, approachable, and safe conference space for public history’s new faces.

  • You’ve been to an NCPH conference in the last seven years
  • You enjoy conferences and want to help a first-time attendee feel more comfortable
  • You can commit to meeting your connection for at least fifteen minutes 1-2 times in person at the annual meeting, and perhaps answering a few emails in advance
Sign up to receive a Connections mentor if..
  • You’ve never been to an NCPH conference before
  • You want advice on what to wear, how to meet people, and what not to miss at the conference
  • You want to know where the free food is

Either way, use the form at and we’ll make the connections from there! You’ll receive an email by late March making the introduction.
