#WOWSAA with Dennis Meissner

Posted on Updated on


We were lucky enough to host Society of American Archivists President Dennis Meissner on Wednesday, February 10th. We would like to thank the Project Archivists of the Bentley Historical Library for letting us speak with Meissner as a part of our #WOWSAA series. SAA gathered our tweets into a Storify that can be found here.


Navigator Program for SAA Annual Conference

Posted on Updated on

Annual Meeting First-timer?

Are you planning on attending the Annual Meeting for the first time?  Wondering how to manage the madness? Consider signing up for the Navigator Program.  This program is designed as a short-term mentor program which matches conference veterans with first-time attendees. This informal outreach effort helps newcomers make the most of their time at the conference.

Annual Meeting Savvy?

Please consider signing up to be an Annual Meeting Navigator.  This short-term mentoring program matches conference veterans with first-time attendees. Navigators share their experience, advise new attendees on sessions and special events that are likely to suit their interests, and facilitate networking with other attendees. Navigators typically contact participants prior to the meeting and are encouraged to answer questions by email in advance.

All attendees are welcome to request a navigator or volunteer to serve in this important role. Please complete the Navigator Program Sign-Up form to indicate your interest. For more information, please contact: You’ll be contacted in mid-July and matched with a partner. Deadline to request a navigator: July 3.
