NEW ENGLAND ARCHIVISTS SPRING 2016 MEETING
PORTLAND, MAINE | MARCH 31-APRIL 2, 2016
Early-bird registration is now open for the NEA Spring 2016 Meeting. Make plans to join us in Uncharted Waters in Portland, Maine.
This year's program will push the envelope trying out new programs and new ideas. There will be educational workshops and a Day of Service at the Maine Historical Society, plenary speakers Caleb Neelon and Wes Cowan, a new-member breakfast, and plenty of opportunities for networking. Or experience something different by participating in the very first archives StorySLAM, Moths in the Archives: Stories from the Stacks or NEA’s own Home Movie Day.
Check back to the NEA website and the NEA listserv often where we will post information on the program and workshops, things to do in Portland, and calls for participation. And you can also follow #NEAsp16 for updates and conversations about the meeting.
NEA has reserved a block of rooms at The Inn By the Bay Hotel and Convention Center in Portland, ME (innbythebay.com). The hotel includes an indoor pool and sauna, fitness center, and an onsite restaurant and lounge, and is just a short walk from the lively Old Port area of the city. Call to reserve a room at the NEA special rate ($125/night): 800-345-5050 (reference the NEA Meeting).
