Society of Mississippi Archivists Annual Meeting: Call for Proposals
The Society of Mississippi Archivists (SMA) invites submissions of session proposals for the 2022 Annual Meeting, especially those based on the theme “New Faces, New Futures.” The theme can be broadly interpreted, and relevant topics of discussion might include (but certainly are not limited to) managing change or imagining a new future in relation to:

• Advocacy and outreach
• Archival education and training
• Archival management and labor
• Collaborative/community archives
• Collection processing
• Digitization
• Disaster preparedness and climate change
• Exhibit design and execution
• Recruitment and retention of archival workers
• Reference and instruction
• Role of the archivist
• Social justice and Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Access initiatives
• Strategic planning and long-term goals

Submission Guidelines
This call is open to SMA members, non-members, and students. Please share your proposal in roughly 250 words. Proposals are not restricted to the conference theme, and all proposals related to archives will be considered. Proposals are due no later than February 1, 2022.

Annual Meeting Details
We are hopeful that we will gather for the Annual Meeting in April 2022. Details regarding the exact date(s), location, and lodging are forthcoming.

As the pandemic continues, the SMA Board of Directors are planning for a hybrid conference where attendees and presenters can participate in the manner that they feel most comfortable. More information will be forthcoming as we continue to monitor the public health crisis. All plans are subject to change based on Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and/or Mississippi State Department of Health guidance.
