The SNCA Executive Board held a Zoom call last Thursday to discuss the annual meeting. I am providing a few quick updates, with more information to follow soon.
2020 Annual Meeting: Due to the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the Executive Board has decided to cancel this year’s meeting instead of postponing it and trying to reschedule for later this year. We look forward to seeing everyone at the 2021 annual meeting.
***The program committee for the 2020 Annual Meeting will contact session chairs regarding options for sharing presentations in lieu of presenting at the annual meeting.***
Refunds: SNCA Treasurer Sean Mulligan is in the process of issuing refunds. Approximately half of the refunds have been processed. If you have any questions, please contact Sean at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Annual Business Meeting and Short Program: In adherence to our constitution and bylaws, we plan to hold a virtual annual business meeting and a short program for our organization in May. Stay tuned for more details.

Stay connected!: Please take care, stay sane and safe, and let us know if there’s anything we can do to help. Share ideas on library/archives/museum work from home, tips you are using to balance life, or whatever else via our listserv.
