Register now for New England Archivists pre-conference workshops, being held in Hyannis, MA, on Thursday, March 23, 2017.
Workshops are a great way to learn new skills and network with colleagues. This spring, we have two workshops to choose from:
Fundamentals of Project Management for Archivists (SAA Arrangement & Description Certificate Program)
You’re involved in a variety of projects every day, from small tasks such as developing a new procedures manual to large endeavors such as digitizing a collection. But because project management methodologies are not necessarily incorporated into formal education or archival training programs, you’ll want to take advantage of this course to acquire the essential knowledge and tools necessary for managing successful projects.
SAA will provide a $25 discount off the non-member rate for NEA members. Log on to the NEA website to view the promotional code on the member portal.
Funding for Archives Work
This grants workshop will provide a detailed look at the competitive archival grant programs at the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), which are made through the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC), with a particular focus on the Access to Historical Records grant program. Executive Director Kathleen Williams will walk you through the grant application process—the components of a good project summary, narrative, budget, and supplemental materials— as well as discuss the review process, the response phase, and Commission recommendations. You will have the opportunity to read and comment on two sample applications as part of the peer review process and come away with tips on what makes a successful application.
All workshops will be held at The Resort and Conference Center at Hyannis on March 23, 2017, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
