The Steering Committee of the Section of Professional Associations (SPA) held its annual planning meeting in Boston, USA, from March 21st to 25th, 2014. The meeting was hosted by Gregor Trinkaus-Randall at the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners. The Committee was also invited to present short national overviews at the New England Archivists Spring meeting in Portsmouth.
At Simmons College, in Boston, SPA  was invited to meet the students of the GSLIS program (Graduate School of Library and Information Science). Exchange of views and issues were very fruitful.
