The fall meetings are a great introduction to NEA and to the New England archives community. They’re only a day long, so they’re low commitment, and they’re small and not intimidating. They’re also extremely affordable. All in all, a great way to get involved and meet fellow archivists. My first archives conference was last year’s fall meeting in Amherst, and now I’m on the REPS steering committee. (It could happen to you, too!)
Though the meeting is short, there’s still a great assortment of sessions to catch your interest. There will be sessions on moving images and sound, finding funding opportunities and planning projects, records management programs, WordPress, and online exhibits. There’s also a lightning session early in the afternoon — if you’ve never been to one of these, they are a lot of fun, very energetic, with presenters giving snappy short presentations with a well-focused message.
