A FEW DAYS LEFT: If you were thinking that presenting at a New England
Archivists Spring Meeting is a good way to network, advance your
professional career, and help educate your colleagues -- then you are
correct! NEA invites submissions of session proposals for the Spring 2017
to be held March 22 - 25, 2017, in Hyannis, Massachusetts. This year’s
conference theme is Changing Tides, with a focus on collaboration in a
changed environment. Deadline for proposals is *Tuesday, November 1, 2016.*

Want to discuss the results of a pilot study or program? Have you
road-tested an assessment or practice that breaks with tradition in some
way? Has your institution collaborated with “non-scholarly” users for a
novel or even a disruptive (i.e., innovative) project? We’d love to hear
from you. We're also interested in session proposals from first-time
presenters and those new to the archives profession.

The NEA Spring 2017 Program Committee invites proposals on all topics but
is especially interested in the following:
-- collaboration with new or unique user groups
-- trained archivists working in "non-archivist" roles
– Archivists who have seen the profession grow and change – in what ways?
-- Cape Cod history and culture
-- cross-disciplinary projects
-- projects or initiatives with direct, collaborative involvement from
archives users
-- digital humanities
-- digital curation and digital forensics

NEW RESOURCE: In order to facilitate collaboration, the NEA Spring 2017
Program Committee has created an online space for interested speakers to
develop session proposals together. Use this space to connect with your
colleagues about potential session topics and formats. (Please note: this
collaborative space will be accessible until the deadline for proposals on
November 1, 2016).

proposal -- see the Spring 2017 Meeting Session Proposal Form
