Welcome to the Central Alberta Historical Society (CAHS)

We are a bunch of history geeks with various backgrounds and of various ages and stages. We host a speaker series on subjects of local and provincial interest, promote and publish historical works, develop educational and programming activities related to Alberta history, and have a lot of fun at all of this! We’d love to have you on Board, or as a member. Membership in the Society helps us be the best we can be!


We are really pleased that our nominee for the Historical Society of Alberta annual award for activism in preserving aspects of Alberta history was recognized at the HSA AGM in May.

Congratulations Judy, and thank you for all the work you have done!


At the moment, we’re planning our new season, which will begin with our Banquet and AGM in September. Linda Manyguns, Chair of Indigenous Studies at the University of Lethbridge will be our speaker on that evening.

We’re still working on inviting speakers for much of the next fall/winter season and welcome suggestions from our members and the public. Please email sjbannerman@gmail.com if you have great ideas, and if you have an interest in helping with programs and speakers series (or anything else), that would be welcome, too!

Thanks, and see you in September!


If you’re interested in our speaker series, publications program, social media, or have some really good ideas, we’d love to have you join us. 

We still have a need for a Treasurer on our Board. This is not a particularly onerous postion as we do not have complicated operations, and all books and accounts are kept up to date and audited annually. The outgoing Treasurer has prepared a short written guide for the treasurer’s position and will be happy to meet with a prospective Treasurer to go over the details. If you would like more information, please call 403-304-0742.
