New England Archivists is offering two workshops at the Spring 2017 Meeting in Hyannis, MA, which will give archivists in our region a leg-up on project management and grant funding.
LEAD BY EXAMPLE: The Fundamentals of Project Management for Archivists
The greatest assets in leading teams and managing archival projects are knowing how to navigate the tools, techniques, and relationships. Anyone who has ever worked on a team should consider registering for Fundamentals of Project Management for Archivists.
Part of the SAA Arrangement & Description Certificate Program, this workshop will give you an understanding of the project life cycle, from initiation to completion, including addressing which tools and techniques are best, exploring how to evaluate outcomes and disseminate project information, and demonstrating methods for achieving success.
Bonus: 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.
FIND MORE MONEY: Funding for Archives Work
What can you do to find funding for your repository? To create more access to collections? To better serve your researchers? To preserve historical documents? Grants. Anyone who has an idea for a project to better serve their collections should consider registering for Funding for Archives Work.
Kathleen Williams, Director of the National Historical Publication & Records Commission Description, will provide expert tips and tricks on applying for a grant from the NHPRC, specifically the Access to Historical Records grant program. Through review of sample projects and the opportunity to begin your own grant application package, this NEA workshop will provide you with the skills to put together competitive grant proposals for archives and records management projects.
Please note: Both workshops will be held at The Resort and Conference Center at Hyannis on Thursday, March 23rd from 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. For more information on these workshops, visit the NEA Spring 2017 Meeting website.
