Registration is open for MARAC's Fall 2022 College Park meeting! Join us for sessions, workshops, three plenaries, two receptions plus the Meet & Greet, and nine tours, all spread across four days instead of three. Our program theme, “Our Roots Illuminate Our Future,” will provide an opportunity to look back at 50 years of archival camaraderie, education, and progress, and see how we can use our past to illuminate the future of our profession and MARAC. Visit Fall 2022 Conference for program and registration.
