Conference - New England Archivists Spring

Mark your calendars! The New England Archivists Spring 2012 Meeting will be held on March 23-24, 2012 at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut.
The theme, "DIY Archives," will focus on the practical application of archival techniques. Sessions will cover the DIY-side of preservation techniques, fundraising and grant writings, interacting with the community, interns and volunteers, handling ethical issues, marketing and publishing, online exhibits, and more. We want everyone at the conference to come away with something they can bring back to their own institutions.
Join us to hear keynote speaker, Snowden Becker, from the Center for Home Movies and co-founder of International Home Movie Day. An up-and-coming leader in the field of film management, Becker has frequently lead personal archiving workshops, consulted with local-area community organizations and private collectors, and conducted Archives Week demonstrations on film and video preservation.
