MAC Speakers Bureau

Call for Proposals

MAC invites proposals for one day (4 hour maximum) workshops on all aspects of archives and archival work. These proposals, vetted by MAC's education committee, will be offered as part of MAC's new Speakers Bureau pilot project. MAC will offer these workshops to sponsoring organizations or groups for a nominal fee and will compensate the speaker with an honorarium and travel reimbursement.  We seek creative and timely workshops on a range of archival topics that will engage archivists and records managers (advanced and beginners) from all types of organizations.

Topics of interest can include but are not limited to:  Archival administration (budgeting, collection management, fund-raising); Archival Basics; Arrangement and Description; Conflict Resolution (staff / patrons / researchers / inter-departmental); Copyright and legal issues; Creating policies – collection, accessioning, processing, donor relations; Digital Preservation; Digitization and Managing Digital Projects; Disaster Recovery / Disaster management; and Donor Relations.

Proposals from non-MAC members and from professionals in allied fields are very welcome. 

Deadline: October 1, 2012

Submit a proposal online.
