SNCA's annual conference, held each spring, includes lectures, seminars, panel discussions, workshops, and facility tours which provide both beginner and veteran archivists the opportunity to increase their knowledge of archival trends, methods, and skills. Fees are moderate, and nonmembers are welcome to attend.
Past meetings have featured jointly-sponsored SAA workshops and SHRAB Bootcamp; nationally known speakers such as Dennis Miessner and David B. Gracy II; and joint meetings with the NCLA Round Table on Special Collections, the Southeastern Archives and Records Conference, the Federation of NC Historical Societies, and the NC Preservation Consortium.
Conference locations rotate between the western, central, and eastern part of the state.
