AASLH encourages all size institutions to apply, and to self-nominate. Consider submitting a nomination for a project your organization has worked on in the past 18 months. Creating an AASLH nomination helps measure the success of an organization’s programs and is an important step to excellence.

The Confluence Project has named veteran public radio journalist Colin Fogarty as its new Executive Director. Fogarty will help lead the group's 12-year-old effort to complete the installation of six works of public art along the Columbia River, in collaboration with artist and architect, Maya Lin. These "teachable places" exist at the confluence of rivers, but also at the confluences of cultures, ecologies, and history. As the works of art near completion in 2016, the Confluence Project is transitioning into a new phase, to become, in the long-term, the storytellers of the Columbia.

Fogarty comes to Confluence after an award-winning career in journalism, first as a radio reporter for Oregon Public Broadcasting and then as regional editor of public radio's Northwest News Network. In his new role as Executive Director, he will continue to tell compelling stories about history, its connection to the present, and its capacity to inform the future- not on the radio but in landscape, through community engagement, and in the digital realm.
