    We have an exciting two days planned with presentations, a poster session, vendors, a virtual transcription competition courtesy of From the Page (great for those wanting to play around with the software, or just can’t get enough of transcribing, or, are highly competitive!), and our Annual Business Meeting during which we will provide updates on CIMA’s 501(c)(6) status, present awards, and announce our newly elected Council members, and scholarship recipients. The itinerary is listed below.

    In the meantime…Registration for the 2021 Annual Business Meeting and Conference is now open! We will be sending out a Zoom link for those who register for the Meeting, just prior to the event.

    There is still time to register for the all-day SAA workshop, Introduction to PREMIS, being offered on Wednesday, April 28. The cut-off date for the workshop registration is Friday, April 9th. We need at least 15 people registered, otherwise we will have to cancel. Due to COVID, the day-long SAA workshops currently count as in-person workshops, so take advantage of saving on traveling expenses while you can!

    We look forward to seeing you.
