Join SAA Students and New Archives Professionals for our last #snaprt chat of the year! Mark your calendars for our next #snaprt Twitter chat on Thursday, December 15, at 8 PM ET. We will discuss the role of archival advocacy among SNAPers. For our December 15 chat the SNAP Twitter account will pose main questions such as:
- What is our role as SNAPers to push the profession to be more inclusive?
- How can we make ourselves more visible to those in and outside of the profession?
- What advice do you have for those trying to find their place within the field and within advocacy efforts?
- For those engaged in advocacy efforts, how have you tried to avoid burn-out?
- How can we support each other in the work that we do?
We welcome everyone to join or keep up with this chat using the #snaprt hashtag on Twitter.
If you would like to have a 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 e-mail the SNAP RT Senior Social Media Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org
