Join us in person or virtually for the 2023 Conference of Intermountain Archivists annual meeting May 10-13, 2023 in Logan, Utah. It's a notable year for a couple of reasons. First, we are returning to a traditional four-day conference with a full schedule including pre-conference workshop, presentation sessions, keynote, reception, breakout sessions, business meeting/awards luncheon, dine-arounds, and tours for the first time since 2019. Additionally, we are celebrating our organization’s 50th anniversary, which is reflected in our conference theme: “CIMA at 50: Remembering the Past, Embracing the Future.” We look forward to seeing you there!
