The WHA needs help from volunteers who can pledge to serve in a number of different capacities. These range from serving on various committees to holding elected offices. If you wish to be considered for one of these positions and are willing to put in the time and effort needed, the WHA wants you.

Officers & Council

  • Vice-President (President-elect): 2 years as VP and 2 years as president
  • Secretary: 2-year term
  • Treasurer: 2-year term
  • Executive Council: 9 positions, each a 3-year term

N.B.: The officers and council members meet once annually to conduct WHA business at the annual WHA conference, usually in late June. All 13 members of this body are expected to attend.


The WHA encourages members to serve on committees.

You can find out what these committees are engaged in by looking at their semi-annual reports that are printed in the World History Bulletin.

Guest Editor

The World History Bulletin seeks guest editors who will solicit and edit articles that center on a major world history theme and appear in its periodic focus issues.
