The Oral History Association has recently concluded its national search for a new institutional home and its first executive director. The process began last year, when Dickinson College informed us that it was not in a position to renew its contract. We are pleased to announce that the search is over, and OHA has signed a five-year contract with Georgia State University (GSU) in Atlanta. The OHA offices will be based in GSU’s History Department. In addition to housing OHA, GSU will also be providing the association with its new executive director, Dr. Cliff Kuhn. We are all very pleased and excited, and we look forward to working with GSU and Cliff beginning January 1, 2013. This move marks an important opportunity for growth and development for both the association and the field. Annual conference participants will have the chance to talk with Cliff at the Cleveland meeting, where there will be a session for people to share their ideas and thoughts regarding the association. More details will be available in the upcoming OHA Newsletter.
This year all current OHA members as of July 15 will have the opportunity to vote in our new online election process. Simply use the URL :
Deadline: September 21, 2012
