Your opinion counts - please complete the MARAC surveys

Now that everyone is all settled back at work and Harrisburg is just a happy memory, the Program and Local Arrangements committees need just one thing from all of the conference attendees: please complete the MARAC surveys! If you attended, you should have received a link to both surveys in your e-mail. If you did not receive these links, you can find them now on the MARAC homepage:

Both the surveys (one for Program, one for Local Arrangements) are very short and should not take more than 5 minutes to complete. The feedback that we receive helps us shape our final reports and may influence the future MARAC meetings. Was there something that you thought was executed particularly well (or particularly badly) - please let us know! The planning committees, along with the Meetings Coordinating Committee, review these reports when putting together future meetings.

If you would like to send additional comments, you may always contact a member of the Meetings Coordinating, Program, or Local Arrangements committees. The current roster of MCC members is available on the committee website.

Thank you!

Derangement and Description's 2nd anniversary!

In two very short days, carloads of archivists will begin arriving in Harrisburg for this fall's MARAC. Not only is Thursday Nov 11 the first day of MARAC, but it's also the 2nd anniversary of Derangement and Description! We're celebrating at Stocks on 2nd, just down the street from the Hilton. There will be laughs, there will be comical memories, and there will be at least two fun archivists (hi Rebecca!). Please stop by around 7pmish to whenever.

Derangement and Description:

Bed bugs??

Good news - the Harrisburg Hilton has zero reported incidents of bed bugs according to the Bed Bug Registry. Phew!
