The Society of Georgia Archivists Annual Meeting Program Committee proudly presents the theme for the 2022 annual meeting: Sustaining Archives: Practical Solutions for the Future.

The Committee invites you to attend the meeting, to be held at the Jekyll Island Club, October 26–28, 2022.

Our 2022 hybrid program will focus on creating and sustaining practical tools, partnerships, and healthy work environments. Presentations will examine how archivists build practical approaches to workflows, teaching, collaborations, staffing, and healthy environments. The Program Committee seeks session proposals that highlight innovative research, applied projects, and collective insights that improve our understanding of archival work. While proposals on all aspects of archival practice and research will be considered, the Program Committee is especially interested in the following key topics:

  • Creating and implementing practical workflows, methods, and tools

  • Building sustainable staffing models and fostering healthy work environments

  • Developing and sustaining DEI initiatives in our institutions and the archival profession

  • Engaging with underrepresented communities and/or historically marginalized groups

  • Teaching and learning with archival materials in innovative ways

  • Dismantling silos and building collaborative partnerships internally and externally

  • Exploring environmental sustainability, disaster response, and the effects of climate change

The committee welcomes proposals from anyone involved with archives, including archival staff and volunteers, students, new professionals, community organizers, researchers, and allied professionals. We encourage potential presenters to consider how their proposed session will support the SGA Statement on Diversity and Inclusion.

Proposals can be submitted through the online submission form.

The deadline for proposal submissions is May 27, 2021.
