Membership in CHSA is open to anyone interested in furthering the study and exploration of the history of construction as defined by the Society’s objectives.  Our membership includes academics, professionals, and amateurs with interests in all aspects of construction history. Your annual dues include membership in both the American branch (CHSA) and the international Construction History Society (CHS).

Through local, national and international meetings, through print and electronic publications, and through advocacy efforts for expanded scholarly insights into natural and human-created environments, CHSA members are engaged in scholarship in the emerging field of construction history.

Members of CHSA will receive our quarterly newsletters and all publications, including the journal Construction History, published by the Construction History Society (CHS).  CHSA members also receive reduced rates to attend CHSA’s biennial meetings and conferences.
