Call for Proposals: Michigan Archival Association Annual Meeting, June 11-12, 2015

The Michigan Archival Association (MAA) Program Committee is currently seeking program proposals for the 2015 conference. The 2015 conference will be held June 1112, 2015,  in lovely Holland, Michigan.

Proposals can be for an entire session (typically two to three people) or for one person – we are happy to help match you with other speakers with similar topics.  Sessions typically last an hour to an hour and fifteen minutes depending on scheduling.

From the results of our post-conference survey in 2014, some topics of interest to our members include:

  • Digital preservation
  • Digital processing programs
  • Business archives
  • Outreach and Social Media
  • Archiving Private collections
  • Grant writing
  • Disaster planning and response

These are, of course, only suggestions – if you have a particular project or an idea not on the list, we would still love to hear from you!

Please send us your name, topic idea, and a brief description of the topic or session to nicole@mail.lib.msu.edu.

Thank you and please feel free to spread the word…and volunteer others!  We are happy to contact people to fill in our program, so if you know someone working on an interesting project, please let us know. You do not have to be an MAA member to present.
