The UHA Board of Directors is delighted to announce the appointment of Allyson Moralez to the position of UHA Executive Director effective March 5th, 2022. Allyson will serve as interim director, replacing current Executive Director Hope Shannon as she moves on to her new position with the American Historical Association. Allyson has worked very closely with Hope as the Operations & Special Events Assistant since October. Along with assisting Hope with regular UHA operations, she has produced social media content in her time with the UHA, which includes the launch of the UHA Instagram. Allyson also developed the virtual 2021 UHA awards ceremony released during Urban History Month in place of the in-person conference. Allyson is very excited to take on the position, especially as plans move forward for the in-person 2023 conference in Pittsburgh.
Any questions about this interim appointment to the Executive Director position of the UHA can be directed to UHA president Joe Trotter.
The UHA board extends a heartfelt thank you to Hope Shannon for all of her amazing work and wishes her luck in her new role as the Marketing and Engagement Manager of the American Historical Association
