2020 Annual Meeting of the Society of Georgia Archivists

Annual Meeting Update (May 8, 2020)

The Society of Georgia Archivists Executive Board has voted to hold the 2020 Annual Meeting, scheduled for November 11–13, virtually rather than in person. The Jekyll Island Club Resort has graciously allowed us to defer our 2020 reservation to the fall of 2021. The board made the decision to meet virtually this year and postpone our visit to Jekyll Island out of concern for the health of SGA members, vendors, and venue staff and in acknowledgment of the pandemic's financial consequences for individual members and our employers.

Our planning team is already hard at work transforming the conference into an engaging and enriching virtual event. Our conference theme, Building Partnerships and Dismantling Barriers, is particularly apt in this new and rapidly changing environment where our profession relies more than ever on collaborative, innovative approaches to preservation, access, and outreach. 

We are still exploring options for virtual pre-conference workshops and modifying our process for presentation proposal submission. We will keep you informed as further details become available. In the meantime, please save the dates (November 11–13, 2020) and consider preparing a proposal for a virtual presentation or poster. We look forward to sharing SGA's first-ever online conference with you this November!

About the 2020 Annual Meeting

Join us online November 11–13, 2020!

With the theme "Building Partnerships and Dismantling Barriers," this year's program will focus on how our profession can continue to grow through inclusive practices designed to attract new user groups and improve the experience of existing constituencies. Presentations will examine how archivists can strengthen their relationships with researchers, donors, colleagues, and allied organizations; reimagine traditional structures, systems, and practices to enhance the profession’s growth and impact; and facilitate broad access to collections and services.
