The American Historical Association seeks your feedback on a new membership initiative oriented toward secondary school history and social studies departments. This initiative responds to requests over the past year from some of our pre-collegiate members who have inquired about the possibility of an AHA departmental membership for secondary schools. We currently offer this type of membership only to colleges and universities. As we consider developing this new program, we want to understand the needs and interests of pre-collegiate history teachers and their departments from across the country. Please take a few moments to answer the questions below.

* 1. Name

* 2. Name of School or Professional Affiliation

* 3. Location of School or Professional Affiliation (city, state)

* 4. Type of Institution (e.g. public 9-12, private K-12, etc.)

* 5. Professional Title (e.g. teacher, administrator, etc.)

* 6. Size of department

* 7. Field(s) of Specialty (e.g. US, World, Honors, AP, etc.)

* 8. If offered, might your institution be interested in an AHA departmental membership? Why or why not?

* 9. What potential obstacles are there for your institution in obtaining an AHA departmental membership?

* 10. What type of benefits or resources would you want to receive through a departmental membership (e.g. curriculum units, online resources, discounts, etc.)?

* 11. Would you be interested in access to professional development webinars as a potential member benefit? If so, what topics would you like to see included?

* 12. Are there potential partners that the AHA might consider in order to provide member benefits (e.g. museums, other professional organizations, publishers, etc.)?

* 13. Given the benefits you have suggested above, what do you feel is a reasonable price for an AHA departmental membership?
