History Council of SA

The History Coouncil of SA (HCSA) promotes and advocates for the needs and interests of members to a range of organisations, government departments and other key stakeholders. By becoming a member, you help us to provide a voice for history and heritage issues.

The HCSA speaks on behalf of all history and heritage issues in SA and plays a key advocacy role to government on behalf of its member organisations.

HCSA is able to represent and support its members by advocating to government and government agencies and through the media. We celebrate and raise the profile of history by publishing articles and letters, hosting forums and lectures and presenting Historian of the Year Awards. Distinguished speakers are invited to present the HCSA’s Annual Lecture.

HCSA is associated with a wide range of organisations and networks through its members, particularly Committee members who are closely linked to key organisations, as well as via the events it organises or participates in. These history events include the History Trust of South Australia’s History Festival and the State History Conference, talks, walks and shows co-presented with libraries, universities and history groups, and sending a delegate to the annual meeting of state History Councils at the Australian Historical Association’s conference.
