The History Teachers’ Association of Australia (HTAA) organises and runs the NHC.

HTAA - History Teachers' Assocation of Australia

The HTAA aims to promote public support for a more widespread involvement in the teaching, learning and making of history. It encourages differing perspectives on the global experience, in the belief that an understanding of our diverse yet common past is a prerequisite to informed participation in Australian society.
