Call for Proposals SCA AGM 2023

November 02, 2023 6:25 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

The Society of California Archivists (SCA) invites submissions of session proposals for our second all-virtual Annual General Meeting (AGM) which will be held from April 15-19, 2024

The Program Committee welcomes proposals, particularly those based on next year’s theme of Pivoting: Responding to Changes in the ArchivesThe theme can be broadly interpreted to address how we respond to changes in the field, in the workplace, or how personal pivots affect our careers. We aim to include a broad and diverse range of sessions and topics including, but not limited to:

  • Career transitions

  • Disaster planning and recovery

  • Changes in institutional partnerships

  • Space renovations

  • Moving physical collections

  • Migrating digital collections

  • Pandemic-specific pivots

  • Institutional reorganizations

  • New approaches to processing/collection management

Please note that proposals do not have to fit into the theme to be included.  Other aspects of archival practice and research are also welcomed.

First-time presenters, current graduate students, early-career professionals, solo archivists, community members, and other individuals who work with archival materials in less traditional or unconventional roles are encouraged to submit a proposal. We welcome proposals from archivists and memory workers at all stages of their career.

Submit your proposal here: https://forms.gle/Gv1FEzmmWdQ3xvDZ9 

Or if you have a session topic in mind and want to reach out to possible co-presenters, feel free to use this AGM Session Idea Sheet to help make connections. 

The deadline for proposals is Monday, December 4, 2023 (11:59p PT). 

We look forward to your proposals and thanks for helping us make the 2024 AGM a successful one!
