Another great Society of American Archivists Annual Meeting has come and gone…
Nearly 1,800 archivists descended on Cleveland this year for informative sessions and educational opportunities, networking and socializing, and (we hope) exploring some of the great food and attractions that Cleveland has to offer. You logged nearly 450 visits to Cleveland and other Northeast Ohio repository tours and open houses.
We hope you found our Host Committee blog helpful in navigating your adventures in Cleveland! We are so pleased to have received more than 9,600 visits to the blog. So thanks to all who let us help you plan and enjoy your trip!
Thanks also to everyone who volunteered and contributed to the local service projects! For the Cleveland Animal Protective League, $3,420 was donated–including money and the value of items donated through the Amazon wish list–and on-site at the conference donations of blankets (some hand-knitted), food, toys, and office supplies were accumulated for the shelter. The Shoes and Clothes for Kids project collected two boxes of donations on site, and the volunteer group packed 40 boxes of shoes and clothing at the SC4K Cleveland location.
We look forward to seeing you all again in Atlanta in 2016…Or, as they say in the music biz (how could we resist one more music reference from the Rock and Roll Capital of the World?):
Catch you on the flip side!
