The Association of Public Historians of New York State (APHNYS) 2018 Annual State Conference will be held in Rochester, NY October 1 – 3, 2018. The conference planning committee is currently accepting proposals for conference presentations. Proposals can be submitted for papers, panels and interactive programs. This conference will draw approximately 125 attendees from across the New York State. The time allowed for presentations/panels will be 1 hour and 15 minutes (including questions and answers). APHNYS does not pay for speakers. We hope that all who submit proposals will think of this as getting the word out to historians, etc.
