Just a reminder that after next Thursday (February 11th) the early bird registration rates for the Spring 2015 MARAC/NEA Joint Meeting will end.

We have four really incredible workshops lined-up. After next Thursday (February 11th), the early bird registration for workshops also end. So sign up now for Copyright Fundamentals for Archivists and Librarians, Project Management for Archival Processing, Caring for Historical Records, and Arrangement and Description.
DAY OF SERVICE VOLUNTEERING EVENT
Thursday, March 19th is the Day of Service event is a chance for archivists to help our colleagues improve access to important archival collections at their repositories. And it’s a chance to get together and meet new people. Shifts are first come, first serve, and space is limited so sign up early to guarantee a spot.
Take advantage of being an NEA member and apply for one of the Meeting and Travel Assistance Scholarships to help offset the cost of registration, meals, and travel expenses. We offer this scholarship because NEA is committed to our members’ professional development and we know the importance of attending the annual spring meeting to engage with colleagues, keeping abreast of new archival theories and technologies, and networking. Go to the NEA website for more details on how to apply. Applications must be submitted to Silvia Mejia (email@example.com), Meeting and Travel Assistance Scholarships Committee Chair, by February 15th.
