We are excited to announce our program for MAA’s 2016 Annual Meeting! Members should be receiving their printed Meeting Programs in the mail about now, and it is also available to anyone online.
The Michigan Archival Association invites all Michigan archivists and those working with or interested in archives to attend our 2016 Annual Meeting in East Lansing, Michigan, taking place June 16-17. This year’s meeting site is the Kellogg Hotel & Conference Center, located on the campus of Michigan State University. The 2016 program offering includes presentations on collection management, student engagement, emerging technology, oral history, local history, and more. Conference attendees will also enjoy a reception at the Kellogg Hotel & Conference Center, and tours of the historic MSU campus, the innovative MSU Libraries, Beaumont Tower and the MSU carillon, and Spartan Stadium — not to mention opportunities to venture out on your own for treats like ice cream at the MSU Dairy Store, art at the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum, or a show at the Wharton Center for Performing Arts. In addition, the Greater Lansing area offers a wide array of cultural and recreational opportunities, such as visits to the State Capitol Building, designed by leading Gilded Age architect Elijah E. Myers, the Michigan Historical Center, and the Michigan Women’s Historical Center & Hall of Fame.
This year, we are pleased to present as our pre-conference workshop an afternoon class on “Working with Audiovisual Collections,” led by Ryan Edge, Media & Digital Preservation Librarian at Michigan State University Libraries, on June 15 at the MSU Main Library. Read more about the workshop in the flyer attached at the end of the online Meeting Program.

Located on the Michigan State University campus, the Kellogg Hotel & Conference Center is a 15-minute walk or a short drive to downtown East Lansing’s restaurants, shops, and cultural venues.
