Join the HA

The HA is the only membership organisation that supports history in all its forms: professional, public and popular.

One of the things that makes the HA unique is the bringing together of the whole of the history community to share expertise and knowledge – from school and university educators to academics and formal and informal students of history. We’re passionate about supporting the learning and enjoyment of history at all stages and whatever your level of experience.

Whether you are joining for professional support for your or your school, or simply want to expand your love of history as part of a growing community, there are a range of practical benefits for joining the HA, including the unique support that the association offers you as an individual or as history educators:
