SAA 2015 Session Proposals

The Program Committee for the 2015 Annual Meeting of the Society of American Archivists is accepting session proposals through midnight on Wednesday, October 8, 2014. Although there is no specific theme for SAA 2015, the Program Committee notes that “proposals related to archival advocacy will be given added consideration, as will sessions that explore new ways to grow the profession.” You can read the full call for proposals here.

In its ongoing efforts to revise and improve our organization’s approach to annual meetings, the SAA Council has suspended section and roundtable endorsements for 2015. This year, the SNAP Roundtable Steering Committee hopes to support the development of excellent proposals from the ground up. Inspired by the work of the Electronic Records Section and other SAA groups, we have created a Google spreadsheet to help SNAP members coordinate proposals, brainstorm ideas, and find potential presenters.

Do you have a great idea for a session that highlights the unique contributions and experiences of students and new archives professional? Share your idea on the SNAP RT hosted spreadsheet, and stay tuned in the coming weeks for additional resources on drafting session proposals.
