2022 SCA AGM Session Proposal Form
The Society of California Archivists (SCA) invites submissions of session proposals for our 2022 Annual General Meeting (AGM) to be held in-person from May 18-21 at the Renaissance Palm Springs Hotel.

The deadline for proposals is Wednesday, December 15, 2021 (11:59p PT). If you have a particular topic in mind and are looking for co-presenters, please fill out this "AGM Session Idea Sheet" here: https://bit.ly/3mKrcV3

The Program Committee invites your submissions, especially those based on next year's theme "Archives Represent." The theme can be broadly interpreted as what archives should, do, and could represent, such as:

-- Issues regarding inclusivity and reparative work in the archives
-- How archivists are represented in the workplace and labor force
-- Archives as authority and how it relates to power imbalances, privilege, and colonial practices
-- Archivists' "presence" during 2020 (i.e. work from home projects, "COVID collecting" projects, archives & activism)
-- Redefinition of archives/archivists (what does it mean to be an archivist today?)
-- Archives & the digital realm
-- Advocacy
-- Archives and collaborative work within a community
-- Considerations on the operational costs of stewardship

Other aspects of archival practice and research are also welcomed.

First-time presenters, current graduate students, early-career professionals, lone arrangers, community members, and other individuals who work with archival materials in less traditional or unconventional roles are encouraged to apply.

Presentations that are framed within archival theory and promote discussions that are more broadly applicable to a range of organizations/individuals will be given preference over sessions that simply discuss completed projects with narrow applicability. We strongly encourage presentations that are thought-provoking, inform decision-making, and/or advance thinking on archival topics!

Possible session types include:

-- Panel Discussion: Open session with a panel of three to four individuals informally discussing a variety of theories or perspectives on the given topic(s).
-- Traditional: Open session with two to three fully prepared papers of fifteen minutes each and a comment and discussion period after the papers.
-- Lightning Talk: Fast-paced open session with many concise papers presented under a tight time limit, with details of the limit determined by the proposer.
-- Poster Presentation: A summary of your research, scholarly, or creative project in a visually engaging manner. Presenters will be expected to be stationed by their poster at a specified time during the AGM to discuss the poster with viewers.
-- Alternative Format: Don’t feel confined by the prescribed formats - suggest an alternative or create your own! Sessions may take a variety of forms. We welcome your creative ideas about how your topic might best be addressed.

The Program Committee will review all proposals and contact the session chair by late January 2021. All presenters are required to register for the AGM and may only participate in one session.

SCA is committed to making the AGM welcoming and accessible to all presenters and attendees. If you need specific accommodations to support your participation in this event, please contact the program committee chair.

Please note: all presenters will be required to register for the conference.
