New Name for OHAA

At the Biennial OHAA held in Adelaide last week, members approved a constitutional name change from Oral History Association of Australia to Oral History Australia.  Members felt that this modern and focused name will have greater meaning to a wider range of people and makes our aims more readily identifiable.  Another significant change to the constitution is that the state oral history associations are now members of the national body.

OHAA-QLD  will not have to change its name, but will need to make minor changes to its constitution to reflect these changes.  OHAA-Qld will vote on any changes at its upcoming AGM on 12 October 2013 at State Library of Queensland.
