The Roundtable for Early Professionals and Students (REPS) is excited to announce our next event: a workshop on creating your own working groups!
Join REPS on December 9, 2013 at 5:30 PM in the MIT Reading Room (http://libraries.mit.edu/archives/) for a workshop on creating working groups. This meeting is open to all NEA members and will last two hours. REPS will provide tips on how to create and sustain a working group, an opportunity to form your own working groups, and the tools to start working on topics that matter to you. REPS members have already suggested topics such as research and publications, coding, and making the most out of your internships, but these are just some starting points.If you are interested in this event, please sign up at: https://www.eventbrite.com/event/9258752177. Within the next few weeks you will receive more information from REPS about the format of the meeting and we will send you a short questionnaire soliciting your ideas for working group topics to be discussed at the workshop! If you are unable to attend the workshop but would like to participate in a REPS working group, please email your interest to Camille at email@example.com.
As always, please feel free to email us any questions or comments you have about this event! Light refreshments will be served and we look forward to seeing many of you on December 9.
Sincerely, Caitlin, Liz, Sofía, and Camille on behalf of the REPS Co-Chairs and Steering Committee
Over the past few months, NEA has made a concentrated effort to try and build better and stronger partnerships with our allied organizations. And the hard work is starting to pay off! Today we are excited to officially announce our new partnership with The National Association of Government Archives and Records Administrators (NAGARA). So be on the lookout for announcements about upcoming NAGARA events.
Many thanks to all the people who attended the Fall Symposium and to all the volunteers who made it such a wonderful, thought-provoking event.Program Committee and Local Arrangements:

The NEA board is pleased to announce the appointment of William Ross (Professor and Head of the Milne Special Collections and Archives Department at the University of New Hampshire), James Roth (Deputy Director of the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library), and Sarah Shoemaker (Director, University Archives & Special Collections, Brandeis University) as Editors-at-Large for the Journal of Contemporary Archival Studies. A collaboration between New England Archivists and the Yale University Library, the journal's aim is to further awareness of issues and developments in the work of professional archivists, curators, and historians, and serve as a locus for graduate students and professionals in library science, archival science, and public history to contribute original works of research and inquiry for peer-review and publication.
