Greetings Fellow Archivists!
The 2023 Host Committee is looking for volunteers to help welcome folks to the SAA Annual Meeting in Washington DC. If you are a DC native, resident past or current, or a lover of DC then we want you on the committee!
Working closely with the SAA Executive Director and staff, the Host Committee serves as an advisory group to, and onsite extension of, the conference staff. Committee members provide their knowledge of the local area and its history and ideas for the non-program-related arrangements associated with the Annual Meeting.
The conference staff works with Committee members' suggestions, the SAA Council-adopted budget, and the input of the SAA President and other leaders and staff to explore options and make final decisions and arrangements. Committee members also contribute promotional information (including articles, photographs, and online-only information about the host city) and serve on site as registration personnel.
