Save the Dates! What’s On at the Texas Historical Association (TSHA) in 2022-2023

Like our friends at the Texas Association of Museums, summer is planning time. Here’s a preview of what we’ve got coming in our new year, which begins in September.

 

TSHA's 127th Annual Meeting to be held in El Paso in 2023

The 2023 Annual Meeting will be held at the El Paso Convention Center March 2-4. TSHA’s Annual Meeting is the largest gathering of its kind for Texas history enthusiasts and scholars and attracts approximately 700 attendees each year. We are delighted to be convening in the historic Las Plazas Arts district of downtown El Paso next spring. In addition to our presentations and special events, there will be plenty of opportunities to join tours of historic El Paso.
