The Conference of Inter-Mountain Archivists (CIMA) participated in the 2009 Nevada Library Association (NLA) Annual Conference in Elko, Nevada; October 7-10, 2009. CIMA had a conference exhibit on display. CIMA President, Michael Frazier, manned the CIMA booth while handing out CIMA brochures and marketing materials. CIMA’s appearance at NLA was part of a larger initiative to reach out to other institutions and professionals working with archival collections.
In addition to the CIMA exhibit, Frazier and Nevada State Archivist Jeff Kintop led a panel discussion on the state of archives in Nevada and the inter-mountain region. Participants learned of the great archival tradition in Nevada, and the continued connections with Utah, Arizona, Idaho, and New Mexico. CIMA’s visit to NLA received positive feedback, and the organization was encouraged to participate in the NLA conference again next year.
