Conference of Quaker Historians and Archivists (CQHA): 2021 FAQ

Call for papers, program and registration information, and guidelines for presenters for the upcoming Conference of Quaker Historians and Archivists.

Frequently Asked Questions


Where can I learn more about using Zoom?

See Zoom’s instructions for joining and participating in a webinar.

I can’t attend the whole conference. Should I register?

Yes! We understand that in these unusual times there are competing demands on everyone’s time and attention and you may not be able to attend every session. Yet, an engaged and active community is part of what makes CQHA great. We ask that you will support this community by participating in as much of Virtual CQHA 2021 as is possible.

Will there be recordings of Virtual CQHA 2021 available to view at a later time?

In order to preserve the real-time and in-person character of a CQHA conference, as well as to honor the work-in-progress nature of some presentations, we have elected not to post CQHA recordings. We hope you will be able to join us in person at the designated times. We are also happy to help put you in touch with specific presenters, whether or not you have been able to attend their sessions. 

CQHA usually meets every other year, on the even years. How does Virtual CQHA 2021 affect that schedule?

Virtual CQHA 2021 is a postponed version of what would have been our 2020 conference at Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana. We intend to return to our regular schedule and hold an in-person conference in 2022 (location to be determined).

How can I get more involved in CQHA?

CQHA is a volunteer organization run by a Steering Committee that is selected at the Business Meeting during the conference. If you are interested in becoming more involved, please be sure to join us at the 2021 Business Meeting! You can also contact us by email at
