Hyatt Regency Chicago

Make No Little Plans...THINK BIG! Expo

Plan Now to Exhibit at ARCHIVES 360°... The Premier International Archives & Information Technology Expo.

The THINK BIG! EXPO Is the place for Archives, Records, and IT Professionals to learn about your products and services, ask questions, and provide their marketplace perspectives. ARCHIVES 360° brings together – in one place and at one time – the purchasing decision makers at the local, state, and national levels. Take advantage of their BIG IDEAS – and share a few of your own.


Call for Student Paper and Poster Presentations

The 2011 Student Program Subcommittee is accepting proposals for two special sessions - a paper session and a poster session - dedicated to student scholarship during SAA’s Annual Meeting in Chicago, August 22-27, 2011. Work from both master’s and doctoral students will be considered. Proposals that address the program theme are especially encouraged. (due on Friday, January 21, 2011)

Call for Program Proposals

p>The 75th anniversary offers a wonderful opportunity for celebration and for us all to take a good look around – at SAA and its role as a professional organization, at the archives profession and its intersections with other professions and domains, and at ourselves as professionals in an evolving global information environment. With that in mind, the theme for the 2011 Annual Meeting is “ARCHIVES 360°.” (due on Friday, October 1, 2010)
