By continuing to build our presence online through social media, NEA is able to provide another venue for archivists to gather and share ideas. During meetings and events we encourage conversations on Twitter and Facebook to bring in a wider audience.
But what happens when the event is over? What is the point of all these online conversations?
For the Fall 2014 Meeting, Elise Dunham, CommComm's social media coordinator, curated a Storify page that tells the narrative of our online social media conversations surrounding the symposium. She created a structure for the story and added annotations -- reconstructing the narrative of the Fall 2014 Meeting.
Our story starts: "Attendees embarked from all over New England the morning of November 1 to convene in Newport, RI, for a rainy day in the City by the Sea..."
We invite you to read the NEA Fall 2014 Storify page.
...AND A QUESTION FOR MEMBERS
Since attendance was low for the Fall 2014 Meeting, we would like anyone who did NOT attend the symposium to answer a one-question survey telling us your reason why.
Answers are anonymous and there is room to add comments, if you wish.
Thank you so much for your help.
