The Association meets on the fourth Tuesday of the months of January - May and September - November at 7:30pm. Programs are held in the Upper Moreland Township Building Council Room, located at 117 Park Avenue in Willow Grove. Public programs of UMHA are free and open to the public.

The programs feature speakers on a variety of historical and not-so historical topics followed by refreshments. The agenda generally includes time for attendees to question our experts on matters of local history and also provides an opportunity for attendees to bring artifacts and documents to show to the audience.
