Luncheon Speaker: Colleen Shogan, Archivist of the United States

Dr. Colleen Shogan is the 11th Archivist of the United States, and the first woman appointed to lead the National Archives.

Prior to her appointment, she was the Senior Vice President and Director of the David M. Rubenstein Center at the White House Historical Association, and she served as a legislative assistant in the United States Senate and as a senior executive at the Library of Congress. Dr. Shogan was the Vice Chair of the Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commission and the Chair of the Board of Directors at the Women’s Suffrage National Monument Foundation.

Humanities Advocacy Day

Tuesday, March 12th

On Humanities Advocacy Day, state-based delegations will visit Members of Congress and their staff. Together, we will advocate for increased FY 2025 funding for the National Endowment for the Humanities, the National Archives and Records Administration, and the Department of Education’s international education programs (Title VI and Fulbright-Hays).

Before we meet in D.C., participants will be introduced to their advocacy group via email and receive advocacy training resources and profiles of the Members of Congress whose offices they will visit. During the NHA Annual Meeting on March 11, we will offer training on Capitol Hill advocacy and all advocates will have time to meet with their groups to discuss strategy and logistics for the following day.
