As we all get in gear for the Spring 2015 MARAC/NEA Joint Meeting this week, catch up on the meeting’s blog posts.
There are posts with insights into the unique aspects of the Spring 2015 Meeting like posts on the lunch discussions and plenary speakers. And everyone might find out something interesting in the new members and student section.
Continue your readings with posts about Boston like “Getting Around,” (did you know there is a new MBTA website/app for tracking the T?) “Things to Do,” and “Dining” where there is a special Google doc called “Dine Around.”
Based on the popularity of the SAA’s Student and New Archives Professional (SNAP) Roundtable’s Lunch Buddies program at SAA, “Dine Around” is program that makes it easier for everyone to network and meet colleagues from both NEA and MARAC. Sign up to host a lunch and see who signs up to join you. Or browse the spreadsheet to find a group of people going to lunch when you are. Be adventurous and choose a group with no one you know!
We’ve had an overwhelming, positive response to this year’s meeting, which is breaking attendance records. Because this is a joint meeting and we have a very popular program, we encourage you to prioritize which sessions you would like to attend. If there is a session you really want to attend, we recommend you get your seat early.
If a session becomes crowded, find a member of the Program Committee or visit the registration desk for recommendations on alternate sessions to attend. Please note that session rooms will not have Wi-Fi, though this will be available in the hotel lobby.
See you in Boston... very soon!
