Archivist Convention Seeks Session Proposals

05 Nov 2020 12:59 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

The Society of Southwest Archivists, in partnership with Louisiana State University, will host a virtual annual meeting May 17-21, 2021. The theme this year is Going with the Flow. As we have all faced numerous challenges over the past year, SSA would like to learn about barriers faced, creative solutions, and what the “new normal” looks like for your archive.

Session proposals are welcome on any subject or skill relevant to the archives or records management professions. Proposals will be evaluated on the completeness of the description, the originality of the topic, and the diversity of speakers. In addition, the Program Committee will prioritize submissions with a strong equity, diversity, & inclusion component. 

SSA hopes that the virtual format for 2021 will make the conference more accessible for various groups, including those located outside the Southwest region. SSA encourages proposal submissions from non-SSA members and those located outside of the Southwest.

Find guidelines, a spreadsheet to facilitate collaborations, and the submission form on the SSA Call For Proposals page.

The deadline for submission is Friday, December 18th, 2020.
