Call for Pre-Conference Workshop Proposals

The Committee on Education of the Society of American Archivists invites submission of proposals for ˝-day, one-day, or two-day Pre-Conference Programs held in conjunction with the Joint Annual Meeting of the Society of American Archivists and the Council of State Archivists (CoSA) in Austin, Texas, August 11–16, 2009. Proposals should build on or enhance SAA’s current continuing education curriculum. Existing programs are listed in the SAA catalog at catalog.asp.

Proposals for new education programs may be developed with specific groups in mind or for the broader SAA audience. Programs are presented in one of the following formats:

  • Workshop: Intensive, problem-focused learning experience that actively involves up to 30 participants in identifying and analyzing problems and in developing and evaluating solutions.
  • Seminar: Educational session in which 40+ participants obtain information from a knowledgeable resource person in a given content area, allowing time for questions, interaction, and discussion.

The Committee welcomes proposals from archivists as well as professionals in related fields.

To submit a proposal, please complete the form (RTF) at and submit (as an attachment or via regular mail) no later than October 15, 2008.  Your submission must include all supporting materials required by the Committee on Education in order to be considered. Criteria for workshop material and what reviewers look for can be found on the SAA Education & Events menu under Program Development.  If you have questions, please contact us at education [@]
