I attended my first professional conference as a full-time archivist this weekend. It was a two day event at UConn in Storrs last Friday and Saturday. Erik and Thomas came down with me and we had a nice night out although it would have been better if the hotel pool had better hours so Thomas could have gone swimming.
I greatly enjoyed the conference, especially since it was geared towards college and university archives. And I am increasing glad that I work at Tufts–it was pretty obvious that my boss is part of the inner group of NEA and well poised for leadership. In fact, she is co-chairing next fall’s conference which is going to be held at Simmons. I’m really looking forward to helping with that –in June, after I graduate.
