    The Board of Trustees voted last week to require unvaccinated conference attendees to wear properly fitting masks during all conference events, except when eating, drinking, or presenting. All guests--including those who are vaccinated--are highly encouraged to wear masks.

    We will not be asking for proof of vaccination. We trust our members and guests to take appropriate precautions to protect the health and safety of all conference-goers. Thank you for complying!

    Last year was a year like we've never experienced before. As we struggled with the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, we also marked the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment that recognized U.S. women’s right to vote and the 150th anniversary of the 15th Amendment that enfranchised black men, as well as the anniversaries of innumerable other “Watershed Moments” in local, state, and national history. As the Association of Public Historians of New York State gathers in Oswego, at the convergence of the Oswego River and Lake Ontario, we seek to examine the various ways in which public historians interpret and commemorate “Watershed Moments,” as well as the role water has played in shaping the communities we serve.

    We've got an exciting program planned for you! Look for the full program on our website soon!

    Applications are now being accepted for the fourth grant round of the Pomeroy Fund for NYS History, a partnership between the Pomeroy Foundation and Museum Association of New York (MANY).

    This round will provide $50,000 in grants to assist 501(c)(3) history-related organizations in New York State with capital needs expenses in 2021.

    Grant requests will be considered for technology equipment, facility maintenance equipment, furnishings, major material purchases, renovations, refurbishments, remodeling and rehabilitation.

    Eligible organizations must be a history-related organization located in New York State and have an annual operating budget of $150,000 or less. If your organization received funding from the Pomeroy Fund in 2020, you are eligible to apply, but preference will be given to those who have yet to receive funding.

    SYRACUSE, N.Y. – The newest grant round of the William G. Pomeroy Foundation's New York State Historic Marker Grant Program opens today, Monday, Feb. 1, 2021.

    This roadside marker program commemorates historic people, places, things or events in New York State within the time frame of 1740-1921. Grants cover the entire cost of a cast aluminum marker, pole and shipping.

    Spanning Western New York and much of the Southern Tier and Finger Lakes regions, this grant round covers the following New York State counties: Broome, Chemung, Chenango, Schuyler, Tioga and Tompkins (Region 10); Monroe, Ontario, Seneca, Steuben, Wayne and Yates (Region 11); and Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie, Genesee, Livingston, Niagara, Orleans and Wyoming (Region 12).

    The NYS Historic Marker Grant Program is open to local, state and federal government entities, nonprofit academic institutions and 501(c)(3) organizations in New York State. Often, municipal historians or local historical organizations (or related nonprofits) will apply for a marker on behalf of a property owner.

    Those interested in applying for a marker grant should submit an online Letter of Intent to verify primary sources by Monday, March 1, 2021. Primary source documentation is necessary to support the text on a marker. The final application deadline is Monday, April 9, 2021.

    To view program guidelines, regional grant schedule and details about how to apply online, visit the Pomeroy Foundation’s NYS marker program page.

    In addition to the NYS marker program, the Foundation also offers several nationwide marker grant programs with themes spanning a range of topics, from folklore to the National Register of Historic Places. The Foundation’s website also features an interactive, digital map with listings of current markers and plaques nationwide.

    Join APHNYS for its first virtual conference and annual meeting on September 21-22, 2020. We had to cancel our in-person conference due to COVID-19, but that won't stop us from getting together online to learn from each other and conduct the business of the organization. All sessions will be held using Zoom video teleconferencing technology. The event is free for all APHNYS members, officially appointed government historians, and anyone interested in learning about the work we do, but pre-registration is required. Click here to register.

    APHNYS Vice President Matt Urtz and the 2020 Program Committee has worked hard to pull together a wonderful line of presentations, including plenary session on the Inclusive Historians Handbook. The handbook, co-produced by the Association for State and Local History and the National Council for Public History and co-edited by former New York State Historian Robert Weible, is a dynamic reference source that supports inclusive and equity-focused historical work in public settings by sharing a knowledge base that invites more people to engage in history projects.

    Other conference sessions focus on topics such as documenting COVID-19, tools for sharing history in a virtual environment, historic markers, and resources available from the New York State Archives. We will also offer training for new historians and a session on applying to become an APHNYS Registered Historian. Look for a complete program soon!
