Annual Conference Call for Proposals 2020

The Midwest Archives Conference will hold its 2020 Annual Meeting May 6-9, 2020 in Des Moines, Iowa. An election year presents a year for choice in leadership, but it is also about the power of decisions. Who makes them, where they are made, when they are made, and most importantly what decisions do you make as an archivist. The Program Committee invites session proposals touching on the theme "Decision 2020" from all areas of archival practice and research and from allied fields. The Program Committee particularly encourages submissions from early professionals, archivists of color and members of the LGBTQ+ community. Please submit your proposal by Friday, September 6th at 5 p.m. EST. by clicking here.
