Introducing SAH Annual Digital Membership: $20
The SAH has added “digital member” to its list of member categories. A digital member has all SAH member rights and privileges, but all media and communication is delivered (via email) and available electronically (via the website: autohistory.org). For example, this means that a digital member receives the bimonthly SAH Journal and the Automotive History Review as downloadable PDF files via email and will not receive hard copies in the mail. However, the digital versions of these publications are available and sent while the printing process is underway, so the digital versions are not subject to the added time it takes to print, mail and deliver the printed versions. Annual digital membership, regardless of domicile, is $20.
Please note: while annual membership dues for North America (U.S. / Canada / Mexico) remains at $50, given ever increasing postage expenses, annual “Overseas” membership (all territories beyond U.S. / Canada / Mexico) has been set at $60.
Like all members, digital members have full access to the “members only” section of the website, which includes all the past issues of the SAH Journal and the Automotive History Review. From time-to-time the SAH produces a printed member directory—while digital members will not receive a printed copy, the website has a member directory with full search capabilities. If digital members wish to purchase a directory as well as issues of other SAH publications, they are available at their given price plus postage.
New Member Benefits (Publisher Discounts!): we are pleased to announce that our members can now purchase books from Veloce Publishers (see: veloce.co.uk) at a 35% discount, and books from Racemaker Press (see: racemaker.com) at a 15% discount. Just use your SAH member number when ordering. Recognizing that our members are car and book enthusiasts, we will try to add more publishers to this list.
Website Benefits: all members are entitled to access the “members only” section of the SAH website: autohistory.org. There, you will find portals to access all the issues of the SAH Journal and the Automotive History Review as well as other features, like the photos and images library; and the website will continue to expand its features and benefits.
2017 MULHOUSE PAN-EUROPEAN HISTORY CONFERENCE
The AHG (Automobil Historisches Gesellschaft, or Association of Automotive Historians) in Germany, and the SAHB (Society of Automotive Historians in Britain) jointly invite you to attend the first pan-European conference on automotive history, with the generous support of the Cité de l’Automobile (Musée National de l’Automobile) in Mulhouse in Alsace, France, from Friday 26 May to Sunday 28 May 2017. We are also inviting AHA (Australia), AISA (Italy), CONAM (The Netherlands), UIA (Serbia), and SAH (USA).
A preliminary reservation has been made for accommodation at the Hotel Bristol in Mulhouse. The provisional cost for bed and breakfast, from Friday to Sunday, is €75 for a single room per night, and €86 for a double room per night. Hotel accommodation must be booked and paid for by delegates individually.
At the moment a programme of presentations is being put together to take place during the Saturday.
The programme is expected to be as follows:
Friday, arrival and welcome, evening dinner in hotel, at delegate’s own cost
Saturday, conference in the Musée National de l’Automobile, with a break for lunch, followed by dinner also in the museum
Sunday, depending on how many papers are offered, there may be a morning session of presentations, followed by optional lunch at delegate’s own cost, and with the possibility of an afternoon visit to another museum.
Various aspects of the event are currently under negotiation but it is expected that costs will be kept at €100 per person, apart from the hotel cost.
