Program description:

The New England Archivists Fall 2017 Meeting will offer all archivists and associated professionals a chance to speak and to be heard. We are keeping it simple at this half-day meeting, hoping to draw strength from one another in small, facilitated discussions about the work we do and the work we would like to do. Let’s talk!

  • Listen to and share ideas about our profession, reflect on our work and priorities, discover opportunities, and learn from colleagues.
  • Connect with one another, whether new professionals or veterans, through conversations, and empower ourselves to thrive in our professional environment.
  •  Build community: this is a meeting for everyone.

call for proposals:

New England Archivists is currently seeking discussion topics and volunteer facilitators for the Fall 2017 Meeting, to be held on September 23, 2017, 9:00 am - 1:00 pm, at MIT in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The format of the meeting will be a series of concurrent facilitated discussions — a chance to talk with each other about the work we do and the work we would like to do. Connect, share ideas, discover opportunities, and learn from each other.

The format of each discussion session will be determined by the facilitator(s) and the Program Committee. Creative and novel ideas for generating participation are encouraged.
