We provide services and programs, which aim to build capacity within the history sector and showcase the importance of history.

There are two types of membership and we offer both individuals and organisations the option to subscribe to an annual plan or make a one-off payment for one year’s membership:

  1. Individual: history enthusiasts and supporters, history students and/or professionals including those in museums, libraries, archives and professional organisations
  2. Corporate: our corporate members encompass large organisations (cultural, academic and government institutions), medium organisations (local libraries, galleries, councils and professional organisations) and small organisations (voluntary and local organisations such as historical societies).

What would historians and history lovers do without the History Council of NSW? For years now the Council has worked to showcase our past in all its diversity. Through its activities and ethos, the History Council of NSW demonstrates that history is vital, fun and deeply embedded in our communities.
