The annual meeting of the Society of American Archivists, held in late summer in different cities throughout the country, includes a wide array of informative education sessions, pre-conference workshops, networking opportunities, special events, exhibits, and tours of local repositories. Geography is a principal factor in selecting potential host cities. (With a national membership, it is important for SAA to move systematically around the country, from region to region.) Other important factors include access and affordability for attendees and SAA’s commitment to diversity, social responsibility, and sustainability in all aspects of conference planning.
View the "Principles and Priorities for Continuously Improving the SAA Annual Meeting" adopted by the SAA Council in August 2013, based on the work of the 2011-2013 SAA Annual Meeting Task Force. Progress on the priorities is reported at each Council meeting.
The 2017 Program Committee invites submissions for 60- or 75-minute live sessions or poster presentations that reflect current issues in the archives profession. Read the full call here.
