Mark your Calendars for the First CBHA/ACHA Annual General Meeting

cbhalogoWe extend an invitation to attend the historic First Annual General Meeting of Members of the Canadian Business History Association/l'association canadienne pour l'histoire des affaires (CBHA/ACHA).

In addition to the formal business required of electing directors, reviewing financial statements, and getting an update on membership, we have arranged for a trio of fascinating members to each give a brief talk on some subjects relevant to Canadian business history and this new organization.  Specifically, we are pleased to welcome:

  • Andrea Schneider -  President, Geschäftsführerin, GUG, Germany (the German business history organization).  The GUG has been in operation for more than 20 years, and Andrea will inform us of their history, how they operate, and what they have accomplished.
  • University Emeritus Professor Doug McCalla – a renowned Canadian historian, Doug will discuss the current state of the study of Canadian business history.
  • Amy Korczynski and M. Stephen Salmon – two noted archivists, Amy and Stephen will discuss the current state of business archives management in Canada.

This promises to be productive and very educational, and we hope you will be able to join us for this historic meeting.
