The Archives and Records Association Section for New Professionals is holding its annual Summer Seminar networking event. This will be held on Monday 13th June 2016 at Friends' Meeting House, Manchester. The event is free and open to all who are at the start of a career in archives, records management or conservation, both prospective and newly qualified.
This year's programme includes the launch of the new SfNP after the Section recently reviewed its mission. The Section exists to support those in the first five years of their career in the record keeping professions. This includes trainees, interns and recently qualified professionals, helping to bridge the gap between new professionals and the wider archive community.
This year the event will feature talks from a variety of professionals at different stages in their careers, offer opportunities for networking and discussion, and sees the return of our popular recruitment panel.
Speakers include: Janet Foster, an archivist with more than 25 years' experience in the field; Alex Hodge, an information manager working for a private estate; and Elisabeth Thurlow, a newly qualified archivist. Emily Hick, a qualified conservator with a range of experience including work overseas, will also feature on the recruitment panel.
Places are free but must be booked in advance. To reserve your place please visit https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/section-for-new-professionals-summer-seminar-2016-tickets-24816157796 by 9th June.
Please note that lunch is not provided, but delegates are welcome to bring their own, or there are nearby options to buy lunch. All delegates are also very welcome to join us for a drink afterwards for continued networking and discussion.
