(New) SAA-SC Business


Yesterday we had our first meeting for Spring 2010, and a big thank you to all who came!

Educational Excursions:

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. :-)

Social Events:

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.

Professional Development:

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:

In addition, the Hawaii Museum Association is hosting their annual conference on Thursday, May 21. This event will occur at the Ford Island Conference Center here on Oahu -- last year, the HMA held their conference on the Big Island. Here is the link to their conference website:

Upcoming Meetings:

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!
