Building the Bridge: RAO Annual Meeting

The schedule for Austin 2009 was released in April and the RAO Section meeting is scheduled for Friday, August 14th, 1-3pm. A brief description of the section meeting is that after the annual business meeting (news, reports, updates, etc.) and election, attendees will engage in a strategic planning session. Meeting attendees will divide into working groups to discuss and propose strategic directions for RAO from the core values of the section to the role RAO can play in various trends, activities, and developments in archival work (e.g., MPLP, 23 things/Web 2.0, National History Day, etc). If you have suggestions for a stragetic planning topic, want to voice your particular interest in one of the topics mentioned here, or have a question, leave a comment here or contact a member of the Steering Committee.

More information will be available as Austin approaches and you will find that information here, the RAO listserv, the RAO website, the SAA meeting wiki (when it is open), and RAO's Facebook group, so however you prefer to receive information from amongst those options, watch for news from RAO. See you in Austin!
