Welcome to Change ADHO.org, a temporary website of the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations. The Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) promotes and supports digital research and teaching across all arts and humanities disciplines, acting as a community-based advisory force and supporting excellence in research, publication, collaboration, and training.
Digital Humanities has grown so much the last ten years that the organizational structure of ADHO is not efficient any longer. At its yearly meeting on July 10, 2016, the ADHO Steering Committee approved a new governance framework and a new financial model. An Implementation Committee has started to work on a more detailed plan that will help to smooth the way for the official change to the new structure effective July 1, 2018. This web site is to communicate about the change.

Check out our Blog to keep up with what the Implementation Committee is doing.
This website has two aims: it presents information about what has already been decided about the new governance framework, and it explicitly invites remarks, ideas, and suggestions on all issues that are still open. You will find this information below, with the option to submit comments for those paragraphs where we need your view on things.
The ADHO Steering Committee and the Implementation Committee are very much looking forward to your input. We need your help to change the ADHO organization into an open, friendly, and efficient community that can continue to work on its mission to further Digital Humanities with more and more new organizations all over the world.
