    This May the Society of Ohio Archivists will return in person together again for our annual meeting! You are invited to join us on Friday, May 20 from 9am-4pm at the beautiful Columbus Metropolitan Main Library in downtown Columbus, Ohio, for a full day of presentations, networking, and an exciting plenary speaker. The theme of this year's meeting is Archives & Sustainability.

    Stay up-to-date on the latest details of the meeting by visiting the Annual Meeting conference page, and follow the conversation online at #soaam22.


    Dr. Kathleen Smythe, plenary speaker SOA 2022 Annual MeetingWe are thrilled to have Dr. Kathleen Smythe, professor, Xavier University Department of History, as our 2022 plenary speaker. Dr. Smythe's talk "Difference, the Long View and Interdependence," will focus on what drives her work as a historian and sustainability leader, how she has used archival resources in her sustainability-focused classes, and the future of her work. She will address how archivists can be partners in climate change action.

    Sessions: The year's meeting will feature a mix of topics around the Sustainability theme, and we have an exciting slate of presentations lined up. We will hear about Oberlin College's archives virtual exhibit exploring its environmental studies program; Youngstown State University on proactively creating and curating collection content from specific, underrepresented groups; and how Bowling Green University is using SNAC. In the "Beyond the Grant: Cultivating Sustainable Next Steps" three institutions will share their work building on successes; Eira Tansey and Ben Goldman will present "Renewable Archives: What Resources do Archives Use and What Do They Need?"; and SOA leadership will host an open forum to discuss SOA member concerns and questions about social justice work in the archives.

    We will also gather over lunch for the annual business meeting, applaud awards, and, over the afternoon break have an opportunity for "networking & table conversations."

    Registration: You'll want to take advantage of Early Bird registration (through April 29) with $45 SOA members; $65 nonmembers; $30 students, as fees go up beginning on April 30. Includes lunch and break refreshments.

    Raffle: Be ready to purchase your raffle tickets from the meeting registration form–no tickets will be sold on site. Funds raised from the raffle are critical to SOA's support of students and new professionals through meeting scholarships.

    This year we are putting together a fun group of items, including tickets to Dayton Dragons minor league baseball, gift bag from MadTree Brewing, Dayton local history basket, archives supply gift basket, and more! Purchase raffle tickets from the registration form--along with your registration, or in a completely separate transaction (it won't mess up your registration). There are three options: 1 ticket for $5/2 for $10/ 5 for $20. Onsite raffle tickets will not be sold. Winners will be chosen at random and announced ahead of the annual meeting through SOA's social media. Stay tuned to the conference webpage and SOA social media for details.
