Distinguished Speakers of the Western History AssociationIn 2012, the WHA launched a Distinguished Speaker Program to recognize exceptional scholars of the American West. The initial list of distinguished speakers consists of all living past presidents. Each year, the WHA President will select five outstanding individuals to add to the list of distinguished speakers. This title will be conferred for a period of three years and is renewable. Upon completion of their terms, distinguished speakers will be designated as distinguished speaker Emeritus as will speakers who are unable to serve.
