SIA Extends Deadline for Annual Meeting Presentation Proposals

Extended Deadline for Presentation Proposals
Society of Indiana Archivists
Annual Meeting 2011

We cordially invite you to share your archives knowledge and experience at the upcoming SIA Annual Meeting, to be held at the Indiana Historical Society in Indianapolis on Saturday, April 2, 2011.

Sessions last approximately 50 minutes. They may be presented by individual speakers, co-speakers, or panels. Sessions may cover basic archival principals and problems archivists face every day, or specific issues where archivists need extra guidance. Sessions should be informative, inspiring, create discussion, focus on the practical applications of the topic, and maybe even be fun!

We are not limiting session ideas for this meeting. They may be lecture-based, hands-on, panel discussions, or other formats. We will accept any topics for review. A few topics suggested by the general membership to be covered in future meetings you may consider include:

Grant writing
Legal form development
Research and usage fees/policies
Educational programming
Public relations/outreach
Digital media transfer and storage
Photograph/Film handling and care

If you are interested in submitting a proposal, please email the Annual Meeting Committee via Jackie Shalberg, SIA Vice President, at with the following information:

- A session title
- A brief description of the proposed session
- Your name and contact information (valid mailing address, telephone number, preferred email address)
- The names of other persons presenting with you (if applicable)

Deadline Extended!!! Please submit proposals by Wednesday, December 1, 2010. Proposals will be reviewed by the Annual Meeting Committee. Submitters will be notified by Monday, December 6, 2010 if their presentation has been accepted. If you are chosen as a speaker, your registration fee to the Annual Meeting will be waived. Please note: You do not need be an SIA member to submit a proposal.

We look forward to reading your proposals!
