Yesterday we had our first meeting for Spring 2010, and a big thank you to all who came!
We covered a wide range of topics, and I've included a copy of our (rather long) agenda below this message. In regards to Educational Excursions, those present voted to visit the Honolulu Academy of Arts Archives & Library, and the Japanese Cultural Center of Hawai'i. Now, we are in the process of arranging these excursions. :-)
For Social Events, members voted on a variety of options. One of those options was the First Friday Art Walk, which occurs every First Friday of the month in Chinatown. Therefore, without further ado, I present our first Social Event -- the February First Friday Art Walk:
When: Friday, February 5th @ 6 p.m.
Where: The ARTS at Marks Garage
Further Social Events will be posted on this blog, and on the Facebook page.
For Professional Development, we discussed two upcoming conferences. The first is the Association of Hawaiian Archivists, which will occur on Saturday, February 13, from 8:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The conference costs student members a low price of $25; student membership is $7.50. For those in the Introduction to Archives Management class, Dr. Wertheimer is offering extra credit to those students who attend the conference. A schedule of the conference can be found here: https://mail.hawaii.edu/uwc/webmail/attach/AHA_newsletter_January_2010.pdf?sid=&mbox=INBOX&uid=8720&number=3&filename=AHA%20newsletter%20January%202010.pdf
And finally, I would like to give out the dates for the upcoming SAA-SC Meetings:
Monday, February 15 @ Noon, in the BaLe / Manoa Gardens.
Monday, March 15 @ Noon, in the BaLe / Manoa Gardens.
Monday, April 12th @ Noon, in the BaLe / Manoa Gardens.
Hope to see you at First Friday!
