The Local Arrangements Committee of the Society of California Archivists (SCA) is excited to announce the 2024 Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be held virtually from April 15-19, 2024. Please see below for the call for session proposals, and stay tuned for more information on registration and other logistics:

The Program Committee welcomes proposals, particularly those based on next year’s theme of Pivoting: Responding to Changes in the Archives. The 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:

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).

The Program Committee looks forward to your proposals and thanks for helping us make the 2024 AGM a successful one!
