Good afternoon,

The SCAA has decided to CANCEL tomorrow’s un-conference due to inclement weather. We have had feedback from attendees who are understandably concerned to travel. We hope to reschedule and will keep you updated.

Contact Virginia Ellison with any questions.

This year’s annual meeting is taking on a different format! We’re focusing on sharing ideas and building partnerships. A series of lightning rounds will give participants the opportunity to share experiences and highlight ways in which they have connected their archives with diverse user communities. Three concurrent “Bridge Building” roundtables will follow the lightning rounds. These open forums will offer participants the opportunity to engage with one another on specific archival concentrations and trends.

This year’s keynote speaker is Nic Butler, Ph.D. who will be discussing his role as the Public Historian at the Charleston County Public Library and surrounding community. 

$35 members; $50 nonmembers (includes membership); $15 students

Online registration is now closed. You may contact Virginia Ellison for last-minute registration
