Chat with Us, Tonight, July 25th!

Please join the Students and New Archives Professionals (SNAP) Roundtable for a #snaprt Twitter chat on Monday, July 25, at 8 pm Eastern Time to prepare for ARCHIVES*RECORDS 2016: The Joint Annual Meeting of the Council of State Archivists and the Society of American Archivists. This year’s meeting is taking place July 31-August 6 in Atlanta, GA. The chat will be a way to share and learn tips for making your time at the conference as productive and stress-free as possible. We hope this chat will be especially helpful for first-time attendees, and encourage previous attendees to share their advice.

We welcome everyone to join or keep up with our chat using the #snaprt hashtag on Twitter. The SNAP Roundtable Twitter account (@SNAP_Roundtable) will pose questions such as:

  • What kinds of activities are there at SAA outside of formal sessions and meetings?

  • How do you approach making connections with new people, especially more experienced archivists?

  • Any personal “must do’s” for this year’s meeting or for SAA meetings in general? What makes a meeting worthwhile to you?

If you would like to have your discussion topic included in this chat, please send it to @SNAP_Roundtable on Twitter, submit it through the anonymous form on the SNAP RT chat webpage or email it to the SNAP RT Senior Social Media Coordinator at ariadne.rehbein@gmail.com. Please see the SNAP RT chat webpage for more information about #snaprt Twitter chats.
