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!

CAHS NEWS

Everyone is invited to a screening of We Are the Roots, a film on black settlers in Alberta and Saskatchewan. Film will be on Wednesday February 20 at 7pm at the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery.

The film, which won a Governor General’s History Award, was the brainchild of Deborah Dobbins, a descendant of those settlers. 

No admission charge and all are welcome.

BOARD We always welcome new and interested people to our committees and as directors. 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.

Did you know you can buy or renew your membership online? It’s true!! Just go to the membership link below.
