Gold Country Archivists is pleased to host a livestream of the SAA conference on Monday, August 5, as an SCA Member Initiated Event. The event will take place at the Center for Sacramento History from 8:30am PST to 12:30pm PST with a break for lunch (on your own) from 10-11:15am PST. We can accommodate 40 attendees for the livestream. Please rvsp to email@example.com to secure a spot. We’ll start a wait list if needed.
SAA has indicated the following sessions will be livestreamed on August 5:
Session 601: Rarely Pure and Never Simple: Archivists, Journalists and the Search for Truth
Session 602: From Archives to Administration: Conversations on Career Transitions for Mid Career Archivists
Session 701: My Comeback Story Overcoming Imposter Syndrome in the Archives Profession
In advance of Monday, we'll send registered attendees a survey to vote for which sessions they'd prefer to see. We'll livestream the two sessions which receive the most votes.
The Society of California Archivists is aware that many of our colleagues are unable to attend SAA this year due to State of California travel restrictions. Due to the unusually high number of members unable to attend the national meeting this year, SAA has provided SCA members four complimentary registrations for group viewings of the conference live stream. The live stream schedule can be viewed at this link.
If you are willing to organize a group viewing of the live stream in your area, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by 9am on Friday, August 2 with the following information:
- Name of organizer (an SCA member)
- Approximate number of participants
- Any additional funds requested, e.g. for refreshments (reimbursement will be $5 per attendee)
Proposals will be approved in the order in which they are received.
We are excited to announce the publication of the Summer 2019 SCA Newsletter! It is now online at http://www.calarchivists.org/Publications/SCANewsletter. Thank you to all those who submitted articles and news items for this issue. Another issue will be coming out this fall, so please consider submitting an article or some news about your work. A call for submissions will go out shortly.
