Fall 2017 Meeting

Loretto Heritage Center, Nerinx, KY | December 15, 2017 

Call for Proposals

It is an exciting time of year for the KCA. We are heading towards our upcoming fall meeting. While more specific details will be forthcoming, mark your calendars for Friday, December 15, 2017, 10am – 3:30pm, when we will be traveling to the Loretto Community in Marion County, Kentucky, to talk about exhibit creation on a budget. It will be a wonderful time to connect and discuss ways to develop exhibits, but it will also be a chance to check out the beautiful Loretto Heritage Center.

For this meeting, we are looking for presentations and activities that will help colleagues in planning, prepar-ing, and creating exhibits for their institutions. Have you created a successful exhibit? Do you have tips about what can help and what to avoid in the process? Do you want to share a practical technique that can make creation of an exhibit quicker and easier? We would love to hear about it!

All archivists, graduate students, and other interested allied professionals are invited to propose a presentation, paper, or active training session focused on exhibit creation. While membership is not required to submit a proposal, it is always appreciated and encouraged! You may also nominate colleagues or suggest ideas for speakers from cross-sector professions such as libraries and museums.

Use the following online form to submit your proposals: https://goo.gl/forms/8FdWQzunFujmtzUv2

Fall meeting proposals should be submitted by Wednesday, November 22, 2017.
