2022 Montana History Conference

The MTHS History Conference is now at full capacity and registration is closed. The waiting list is also full. We are delighted and overwhelmed with the strong interest in this year’s conference. While space is limited this year, we hope to accommodate many more at our 50th annual conference next year in Helena.

If you need to change or cancel your registration, please email Katie White as soon as possible so we can offer your seat to someone else on the waiting list.

The conference will be held at the Rock Creek Resort south of downtown Red Lodge on Sept. 29 to Oct. 1. Hotel rooms are limited at this time. Please click here for hotel information.

If you missed our previous History Conferences, you can find the past conference programs or listen to session recordings here.
