DC 2006: Joint Annual Meeting of NAGARA, COSA, and SAA
July 30-August 5, 2006
and New Members!
We understand that being a new member of an organization or of
the profession, or attending a large conference for the first time,
can be a daunting experience. That’s why we provide a variety
of services and programs that can help you survive — and thrive!—
at DC 2006 and beyond…
New Member / First-Timer Orientation
Begin your day on Thursday by joining the NAGARA, CoSA, and
SAA presidents, board members, and membership committees for
a casual conversation about how to make the most of your time at
DC 2006. A light continental breakfast will be served. (Thursday,
7:00 – 8:00 am)
Career Center / “Meet-and-Greet” With U.S. Archivist
The Career Center provides services and opportunities for both job seekers and employers. Click here for more information.
Interested in exploring your career options with someone who’s
interested in helping you? Want to share your experiences with a
fresh young talent? Stop by the Career Center for coffee and learn
about how SAA’s dynamic Mentoring Program can help you make
the right connections. (Friday, 9 – 9:30 am)
SAA’s Women Archivists Roundtable
and Membership Committee are pleased to sponsor the Navigator Program,
which matches experienced
members with new members or first-time attendees. Your
navigator can help guide you through the maze of this large meeting!
All DC 2006 attendees are welcome to request a navigator or
volunteer to serve in this important role. Just check the appropriate
box on the Registration Form. For more information, contact
Karen Walton Morse at 716-645-2916 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
You’ll be contacted in mid-July and matched with a partner. The
deadline to request a navigator is July 1.
