2012 Conference Press Release

 

Welcome to the National Archives Conference for Fraternities and Sororities!

 

Building on the success of the 2010 National Archives Conference for Fraternities and Sororities the 2012 conference will bring new speakers to the University of Illinois to discuss new and continuing issues important to both the volunteer and professional archivists charged with preserving and maintaining the histories of their affiliated organizations.

 

This year's conference will address issues related to audiovisual materials in archives, examine the relationship between chapters and university repositories, suggest possible applications for social networking tools, and offer a look at some current digital archives projects.

“As an attendee of the 2010 Conference, I found the speakers extremely knowledgeable and very informative about a wide range of subjects. Perhaps even more importantly was the opportunity to meet so many of our fellow archivists/curators/historians who toil so often without much in the way of resources ($ and staff) to preserve the rich history of our fraternal organizations. The time spent swapping ideas and sharing problems and solutions was invaluable. In addition, the contacts made have been very useful to me over the past two years whenever I've needed solutions to problems or issues that arise. There's no way I'll miss the upcoming conference — it's just too valuable to pass up.” -Bob McCully, Sigma Nu
