The Professional Historians Association (SA) Inc. is a membership organisation for professional historians. It promotes the research, recording, writing and presentation of history by qualified historians. Most members have at least one tertiary qualification in history and are accredited under national standards. These standards are determined by the Australian Council of Professional Historians Associations (ACPHA), a national body of which PHA (SA) is a member.
Knowing and understanding history provides a valuable link between the past, the present and planning for the future. The PHA (SA) represents the wide range of tertiary-trained historians in South Australia, including those working outside academic institutions. The PHA (SA) works to ensure that the skills of its members are available for the benefit of clients and the community to extend historical knowledge. It promotes appropriate ethical standards of professional conduct as defined in the ACPHA Code of Ethics.
