ARCHIVES / Chicago 2007
Join Us in “Sweet Home CHICAGO”!
When I worked for Kraft Foods in Chicago from 1986 to 1996, I was often struck by the remarkable diversity of this quintessential American city. A lot has changed since I left – and in the 10 years since SAA last met in our Headquarters’ hometown. But the city remains diverse, and it’s that diversity that has helped it grow and prosper.
At ARCHIVES / CHICAGO 2007, you’ll have a chance to experience the “Second City” along with more than 1,500 of your colleagues from across the country (and beyond) who share your interests, your concerns, your on-the-job challenges. It’s the perfect opportunity to benefit from our diversity of ideas, methods, and experience – and it’s our chance to learn from you!
If you’ve attended SAA Annual Meetings before, you know the excitement that comes from hearing about innovative approaches to archival activities, from exploring new ideas, and from meeting colleagues and renewing friendships. If you’ve never attended an Annual Meeting – or haven’t joined us in recent years – you’ll find a broad array of opportunities to learn, to explore, to collaborate, and to celebrate the world of archives.
SAA’s 2007 Program and Host Committees have outdone themselves:
To highlight the diversity that is such a high priority for SAA and the profession, I plan to focus my presidential address on that challenging topic and I’ve invited a very special guest to keynote the opening plenary session with another perspective….
Whether you’re an experienced archives professional, a newcomer to the field, or somewhere in between, you’re sure to find ARCHIVES / CHICAGO 2007 to be a rewarding and intellectually stimulating experience.
I look forward to welcoming you to SAA’s own Sweet Home in August!
