The Society of California Archivists is excited to announce that registration for the 2020 Western Archivists Meeting is now open!
Join us April 22-25 at the InterContinental Hotel in San Francisco, California, for the Western Archivists Meeting (WAM) of the Society of California Archivists, Conference of Intermountain Archivists, Northwest Archivists, and Society of Rocky Mountain Archivists.
The Western Archivists Meeting happens only once every five years, so don’t miss this chance to interact with archives colleagues from across the western United States in the spectacular City by the Bay. This year’s meeting includes a full program of over 30 sessions centered on the theme of Labor, Power, and Privilege; poster sessions; an opening reception on the hotel’s heated Pacific Terrace; a film night; and numerous opportunities to meet and mingle on local tours, vendor exhibits, Gourmet Night, and a Mission District Taco Tour.
Three pre-conference workshops will also be offered: Protocols 101: A Case-study Intensive on How to Start the Conversation at Your Institution; What Can I Do With This?: Enabling Ethical Re-Use of your Content; and The Community Archiving Workshop: Audiovisual Collections Care and Management.
Registrants will be treated to a plenary address on Thursday by Mark Matienzo, and Friday’s All-Attendee Luncheon will feature Wendy Giddens Teeter, Curator of Archaeology of the Fowler Museum at UCLA, in conversation with Liza Posas, Head, Research Services & Archives at the Autry Museum and L.A. as Subject.
