Annual General Meeting of the Australian Alpine and Snowsports History Association (AASHA)
MOUNT Hotham Alpine Resort has announced the Annual General Meeting of the Australian Alpine and Snowsports History Association (AASHA) that is to be held at Mount Hotham on Friday 28 April to Sunday 30 April 2017.
The annual meeting is an opportunity for historical societies, groups and individuals who share an interest in Alpine history to get together to and help improve advocacy for alpine sports collections, and allow for discussion on organisational and governance matters regarding alpine history.
The AASHA program will include two key guest speakers, workshops and round table discussions for people to share their historic projects and knowledge and some of the activities that are happening in their local and alpine museums.
Mount Hotham Resort Management Board’s Cultural Heritage and Tracks & Trails Officer Andrew Swift said that the AASHA was an opportunity to bring alpine history into the current strategic plans and a great way to network with people who had a passion for alpine history.
“All of the alpine resorts have really good alpine history, but the key to an event like this is to acknowledge the history and bring it back to the forefront of people’s thinking,” Mr Swift said.
“If people are thinking about it and talking about it, then it is more likely to be implemented in part of the strategic planning and to be carried forward into the future.
“It’s a great opportunity to network, to learn about people’s areas of interest and why they are fascinated by these particular resorts.
It’s an opportunity for other people who have a knowledge of Mount Hotham to come and do their thing and talk their thing and, perhaps, embellish what we have done, a lot more.
“It is about the sharing of the knowledge and people being able to utilise their work, and help to promote their own historic works, and to encourage other people to be involved in this sort of thing,” he said.
