SAA-CoSA Conference 2019 ARCHIVES * RECORDS 2019: TRANSFORMATIVE!
A Transformative Experience!
31 July - 6 August 2019
by Joyce Gabiola, Tanya Marshall, and Rachel Winston, Program Committee Co-chairs
TRANSFORMATIVE! is the theme of the 2019 Joint Annual Meeting of the Council of State Archivists (CoSA) and SAA, held July 31– August 6 in Austin, Texas. As program co-chairs, we’ve been intentional about using this opportunity to put into practice ideals that CoSA and SAA seek to uphold. Many discussions that occur within the archives profession— at conferences, workplaces, classrooms, and in our daily lives— revolve around issues of inclusivity, accountability, creating space for underrepresented voices, and challenging the status quo. However, such discussions are often held in the margins. We hope that this conference will help to widen the arena.
