The Northwest Oral History Association: Our Mission, Standards, and Membership Benefits

The Northwest Oral History Association’s mission is to promote oral history by creating a collaborative community of members to give and receive knowledge on interview techniques, supporting technologies, archival methods, and other aspects of our evolving discipline. We value the narratives of people from all walks of life for the way they contribute to an inclusive cultural history and clarify and preserve the historical context.

NOHA appreciates the value of broad public access to oral histories. We also urge each member to practice up-to-date ethical standards where confidentiality or discretion is needed or requested. We encourage professional stewardship among our members in all areas of their oral history work (Effective March 17, 2014).

The Northwest Oral History Association (NOHA) is an all-volunteer 501 c(3) corporation founded in 1985. Its membership is a diverse group of individuals and institutions interested in collecting and preserving historically significant memories through recorded interviews. The region they serve is the Pacific Northwest, including Alaska, Northern California, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Utah, and Washington. Their members have the opportunity to participate in workshops and conferences, attend regional meet-ups, apply for scholarships, and receive notices about activities sponsored by NOHA and our historical associates. Most importantly, membership will connect you with others who share your interest in collecting and preserving historical memories.
