During the “Well-Rounded Archivist” session held at last month’s CIMA/SRMA conference, an attendee shared about the recent New York Times article on the Archivists Round Table of Metropolitan New York that meets monthly and provides great opportunities for archivists to socialize and network. The idea was brought up of creating a similar network in the CIMA region where archivists can gather in addition to the Fall and Spring meetings. What do you think about this? If you would like to be part of a discussion on organizing a group let Julia Stringfellow (email@example.com) know. The article, “Leaving Cloister of Dusty Offices, Young Archivists Meet Like Minds,” can be viewed here.
