A network of affiliated historical societies, comprising more than seventy organisations and over two thousand members, has been developed across Western Australia. These societies support a growing community awareness and appreciation of local history and heritage. The Society supports the affiliated societies' annual State History Conference, which provides opportunities for members to meet each other and gain valuable knowledge from guest speakers and workshops.
Last year the State History Conference was held in Swan-Guildford on September 7 - 9. Delegates from all over WA attended, thanks to a Lotterywest grant, which helped fund airfares, accommodation and registrations for some of the State's more remote Societies, such as Broome.
In 2013 the State History Conference will be held in Bunbury. Registration forms will be forthcoming shortly.
