2013 Annual Meeting Agenda

Our tentative agenda will be as follows:

  • Election results and run-off:  We will announce the results of our election last month for members of the steering committee.  For one position—that of the member-at-large (2 year term)—there was a tie between two of the candidates, so we will be having a run-off election at the meeting.
  • Displaced Archives Project:  Mario Ramirez and Douglas Cox will give a brief presentation about this project, which seeks to identify and compile a directory of archival collections that have been displaced by armed conflict and political instability around the world.
  • International Council of Archives (ICA):  We are pleased to have with us the Secretary General of ICA, David Leitch, who will be coming to speak about ICA’s activities and how archivists in North America can be more involved.
  • SAA Council:  Council members and roundtable liaison Kate Theimer will give us an update on what is new from Council.
  • Open floor:  Last, and certainly not least, we invite attendees to tell us about projects, events, and news from their repositories that relate to international archives and archival collections.  Please come prepared to share and discuss!
