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?

But changes in the program development process also are in the works. Read the full call here. The deadline for proposals is 11:59 pm on Wednesday, October 8. Proposals received after that time cannot be considered.
