Founded in 1958, the society now numbers around 1500 members. An international society, SHOT meets annually in North America or Europe and also sponsors smaller conferences focused on specialized topics, often jointly with other scholarly societies and organizations.

Since SHOT's inception in 1958, members have formed over 12 special interest groups (SIGs) for the purpose of bringing together scholars and professionals with interests in specific fields of the history of technology.
