Under the auspices of the Friends Historical Association, the Conference of Quaker Historians and Archivists is organized by a steering committee appointed by the conference group during our bienniel concluding business session.
Registration is now open for the 2018 CQHA conference!
The Conference of Quaker Historians and Archivists meets every other year. This year we will gather at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, Massachusetts, from June 22-24, 2018. The conference will be held at the UMass Campus Center, with on-campus lodging options available.
The 2018 CQHA Conference will begin with a set of archives-oriented sessions at mid-day on Friday, June 22. History sessions will run from late afternoon on Friday, June 22, through the morning of Sunday, June 24. This year, we have also organized an optional post-conference Bus Tour of Quaker Sites based out of Providence, Rhode Island, on June 24 to 26. Tour participants (limit 40) will benefit from a generous contribution by the Friends Historical Association, which has significantly lowered transportation costs.
