Woven throughout SAA’s Strategic Plan 2014-2018 is recognition of the importance of collaboration, particularly in regard to Goal 2.1. and Goal 3.3. SAA has joined forces with other organizations – notably the Council of State Archivists and the National Association of Government Archives and Records Administrators – on joint annual meetings during the past 10 years. But are there other groups with which SAA might collaborate on conferences?
