Annual Meetings

The Business History Conference has been meeting annually since the inception of the organization in 1954. By the mid-1990s, single sessions had been replaced by multiple concurrent sessions. Attendance continues to grow, as does the variety of meeting activities. The BHC has adopted policies governing the annual meeting.
