About the RAHS Conference

The first gathering of Affiliated Societies took place at History House in Sydney on 17 July 1961. Thirty-three delegates representing nineteen suburban and country societies accepted the invitation of the RAHS to attend. Since this inaugural meeting, the RAHS Conference has broadened significantly, in both the locations in which it has been held and its themes of focus. The conference provides an opportunity to network with people who are committed to promoting local and community history and who enjoy sharing their successes and challenges with others.
