Reach Minnesota's local history community:
MALHM offers three ways to reach decision-makers at Minnesota's more than 500 local history organizations: advertising in the conference program, sponsoring a conference event and connecting with attendees at a vendor hall table. More than 150 people are expected to attend the Minnesota Alliance of Local History Museum (MALHM) 2018 Annual Meeting and Conference in Marshall. Attendees will begin arriving April 24 for a pre-conference event, and stay for the April 25-26 conference at Southwest Minnesota State University.
Help attendees choose your business for dining and entertainment. Reach managers of Minnesota museums making purchasing decisions. Raise your profile with the more than 500 local history groups in the state. See our brochure for ad rates. Reserve your spot by Nov. 1! Camera-ready copy is due Dec. 1. For more information, contact MALHM Coordinator Marci Matson.
"MALHM conferences have grown to be THE conference to attend if you are in the museum world! Between the workshop training and networking you walk away with a list of ideas and how to implement the ideas! I can't wait until next year!"
Nicole Elzenga, Renville County Historical Society
"I returned from the conference with an abundance of ideas that our local museums
can put to use right away. Well done, MALHM!"
Lorna Hunter, Christie House Museum
"What a fantastic conference! As someone who is new to the local history field,
I loved networking with other local history professionals. I plan to come back next year
and bring some of my staff with me!
MALHM Conferences include an evening mixer, such as
the 2015 bonfire on the shores of Lake Superior by Glensheen.
