Call for Proposals to Host the 2022 SHAFR Annual Conference

Call for Proposals to host the 2022 SHAFR Annual Conference

Every other year, SHAFR holds its annual meeting in a location other than the Washington, D.C. area. The SHAFR Council would like to hear from members interested in hosting the conference in their home cities in late June 2022 and is especially interested in hearing proposals from cities beyond the continental United States.  Council is also interested in hearing from potential hosts for 2024 and 2026.
