Newsletter

JWHA publishes a newsletter that contains reports of its annual conferences and biennial banquets as well as other news relating to JWHA and our sister organizations (such as the Mormon History Association). The newsletter also contains research and news relating to the history of the Latter Day Saint movement, focusing especially on the “Prairie Saint” expressions. Subscription to the newsletter is free when you join JWHA.

Following the 2016 JWHA membership survey, the board voted in spring 2016 to move to distributing the newsletter online via our website and to discontinue the mailing of paper copies. This will all the JWHA Newsletter to reach new audiences while also yielding cost savings to the organization. The fall 2016 issue was the first to be distributed through this new method.
