January 2020 meeting

I’m not quite sure what happened to December, but it just went Poof! I’ll call it a holiday vacation but now it’s time to get back to monthly meetings. The poll closed with the selected time of Wednesday, January 29, 2-3 pm.

In our October meeting we brainstormed a ton of topics that we could use for future meeting topics. (List below).

For the January meeting, let’s talk about grants. What grants are out there that can help support archives programs? What grants have you gotten and what did you learn from the process?
