-WHA membership boomed in 2021, from around 1,060 to over 1,400 members! We believe this is a signal to the historical profession that the Western History Association offers its members and conference attendees access to the top scholars in the field, fosters growth for up-and-coming history professionals, and supports all kinds of western history activities--including teaching, research, service, public engagement, and professional development.

In the past several years the WHA conference has rapidly grown in attendance and program content. Our attendees are diverse in their professions, specialties, and career stages, representing graduate and undergraduate students, independent and professional historians, public historians, writers, editors, higher education administrators, K-12 Educators, and other professions. By sharing your message through our ads and exhibits options, you can connect with WHA conference attendees and membership!

The WHA offers some of the lowest rates for advertising and exhibiting at professional meetings and is free of hidden costs. We offer complimentary coffee breaks in the exhibits ballroom on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday mornings, which is a perfect way to network with exhibitors and hold meetings with potential authors. We also pride ourselves in offering the profession with one of the most friendly, inclusive, and diverse gatherings for the study of history in the country! 

Direct your questions about Ads and Exhibits to Paige Mitchell in the WHA Office at and we ask that you review the WHA's "Best Practices for Ads and Exhibits" (see below).
