ABOUT SPRING 2017
This year's meeting, Changing Tides, will feature discussions of the many ways in which the archival profession and the world around us are shifting. In addition to thought-provoking and informative sessions on Friday and Saturday, we will offer two full-day workshops and NEA’s first born-digital boot camp on Thursday. Other highlights include a Day of Service at the Bourne Historical Society, exciting plenary talks by Michael Lesy and K.J. Rawson, and, when you need a break from networking, a quiet room where you can sit on a comfortable couch and take a few minutes for yourself. Come explore all that Cape Cod has to offer, even in the off-season. Sign up for a tour of a local institution, and spend your down time in downtown Hyannis where you’ll find countless restaurants, bars, and shops.
NEA has reserved a block of rooms at The Resort and Conference Center at Hyannis. Call to reserve a room at the NEA special rate ($115/night): (866) 828-9111 or (508) 775-7775 (reference the NEA Meeting).
