The Program Committee is now accepting proposals for the 2020 SNCA conference to be held at Elon University's Moseley Center on March 18-20, 2020. Workshops will be held on Wednesday, March 18, with the conference held on Thursday and Friday, March 19-20. This year's meeting is a joint meeting with the North Carolina Community College Archives Association (NCCCAA).

We invite panel and lightning round proposals, individually or as a group, and poster proposals:

  • Panel and lightning rounds proposals: Each speaker should provide a 150 word abstract of their proposed topic. Panel sessions consist of 3-4 speakers who will each have 15-20 minutes to present. Lightning rounds include more speakers with less time for each, usually 5-10 minutes. This format may be submitted by an individual speaker interested in joining a panel or lightning round.
  • Poster proposals: Please submit a 150 word abstract for your proposed topic. The Committee invites submissions that reflect the diverse experiences and perspectives of those active in the field.

Any individual involved in archives–including staff, volunteers, researchers, donors, academics, and allied professionals–should feel welcome to submit proposals. Students and new professionals are particularly encouraged to submit. Speakers are not required to be SNCA or NCCCAA members. More details about the conference, including lodging and pre-conference workshops, will be shared when available.
