CIMA/SSA Conference Preliminary Program Available

February 9, 2012

As you know, CIMA will be holding its annual spring meeting next year at a joint conference with the Society of Southwest Archivists in Mesa, Arizona on May 23rd through 26th, 2012. The conference theme is “Enriching the Archives Experience,” drawing on the Arizona centennial rally “Celebrate the Arizona Experience.”

The meeting sessions will cover a wide range of timely topics including leadership, preservation of digital material, institutional repositories, collaborations and consortiums (including the role of regional archival associations), and MPLP. Attendees will have an opportunity to exchange ideas with new professionals by attending a graduate student poster session. The meeting will also include preconference workshops on Wednesday, May 23rd.

The preliminary conference program is now available. For more information about conference rates, hotel accommodations, and other activities, click here.
