The Society of Rocky Mountain Archivists (SRMA) invites you to attend our Winter 2022 Conference in Fort Collins, CO on Monday November 14th. The conference will be in-person with a hybrid option. We anticipate a full day of activities centered on the concepts of Reconnecting and Re-evaluating. Our keynote speaker will be Evan Woodard, who conducts regular digs in the Baltimore, MD area to uncover history through relics. He shares the story of his work through podcasts and his website, Salvage Arc. Our panelists include archivist and memory workers who will reflect on multiple topics to help us envision the way forward for archival work and practice.

Our conference sponsor this year is Hollinger Metal Edge!
