OHA Meet Ups

Established in 2022, The Oral History Association sponsors six in-person meet ups (up to $250 in expenses each) anywhere in the United States on a first-come, first-served basis. Here’s how it works:

1.  To apply, use this form to submit the name of two co-chairs for your meet-up, along with a description of your event and how you plan to make use of the funds.  At least one of the co-chairs must be an OHA member.

2.  When selected for sponsorship by the OHA, make an event plan and send it to us at oha@oralhistory.org. OHA will then share your event with members who are in your area while you spread the word in your networks. Make sure to mention OHA’s Code of Conduct when publicizing your event.

3. Meet! Eat! Drink! Be Merry! (and take photos)

4. Send your Meet-Up Report & Reimbursement Request and any photos from the event we can share on the OHA website/social media platforms to oha@oralhistory.org.
