SHA signs with INMEX

The association is pleased to announce that it has contracted with INMEX, an organization specializing in socially responsible event planning, to help us navigate the increasingly complex world of hotel contracts. A nonprofit whose reasonable fee is paid by the hotel and not the association, INMEX is committed to helping organizations ensure that their purchasing power is deployed in ways consistent with their ethical commitments—in the SHA’s case, the commitment to inclusion. This commitment, recently redrafted by the Committee on Women, Gender, and Sexuality, has been posted to our website and is worth repeating here: "The Southern Historical Association aims to be an inclusive organization. It strives to treat all of its members with dignity and respect and to provide a community that is free from discrimination whether based on race, color, sex, religion, national origin, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, pregnancy, marital status, or any other status or classification protected by federal, state or local law."
