The 2015 Program Committee seeks sessions and presentations on any aspect of archives and records management practices—local, national, and international—as well as their intersections with other professions and domains. Proposals will be evaluated on the strength of the 150-word abstract, the diversity of the speakers and their experience, the completeness of the proposal, and the relevance of the given topic to CoSA or NAGARA members and/or the archives and records management professions.

Extended Deadline for Proposals is January 30, 2015.

October is American Archives Month

Archives Month is a coast-to-coast collective recognition and celebration of the importance of the American historical record. It is designed to encourage Americans to explore archives in their hometowns, their state capitals, and in Washington; to find relevancy and personal meaning in an archive's holdings, and to become advocates for the preservation of these important materials.
