2013 Annual Meeting

The Midwest Archives Conference will be held in Indianapolis from Thursday, April 18th to Saturday, April 20, 2013. SIA will be a sponsor, therefor a traditional, full day annual meeting will not occur. We will have a brief annual business meeting and reception on Thursday, April 18, 2013, beginning at 5:15 pm in the Indiana State Library. Our primary business is election of new officers, and approval of minutes and financial reports.

2013 is the 40th anniversary of SIA's annual meeting. To celebrate, cakes will be provided for the MAC reception and the SIA meeting, as well as door prizes!
