Membership is the lifeblood of any organization, and if you are a current or lifetime member of the WHA, we thank you for your support. The WHA is the nexus of the field of world history and counts on your membership to promote the field, support scholars, teachers, and students, run conferences and symposia, and act as a general resource and clearinghouse of information. Thank you for supporting the organization which supports the good that you do in turn.

If you are not yet a member or have let your membership lapse, we invite you to join or renew your membership today.

We also offer our sincere thanks to our lifetime members—thank you for your dedication to the field and the WHA; we appreciate your example and commitment to the health of the organization.

WHA membership runs on a calendar year basis (1 January–31 December). Any memberships processed or received on or after 1 October are automatically processed or renewed for the following year. If you join or renew mid-year, back issues of both publications will be sent to you.

We thank the following individuals who have shown a deep dedication to the field of world history and the WHA by becoming lifetime members of the World History Association.

We are in the process of updating the tech stack for the organization. This summer we will have a new membership database with a fully-integrated website that will greatly improve the user experience for us all. In the meantime, there are some issues with the current tech stack that we do not have quick fixes for. This is a Troubleshooting guide to help navigate these issues.
