*Presentations sought for 2012 Northwest Archivists/Oregon Heritage
People interested in making presentations at the joint 2012 Northwest
Archivists/Oregon Heritage Conference are invited to submit proposals by
October 14.

The conference will take place April 26-28, 2012, in Salem, Oregon.  The
conference theme is “Fertile Ground: Planting the Seeds for Restoration,
Innovation and Collaboration.” Using the rich farmlands and streams of the
Willamette Valley as a backdrop, the conference will highlight
multi-disciplinary approaches that are strengthening and expanding the
capacity of archives and heritage in the Northwest.

Innovations in technology and institutional processes have increased access
and awareness of heritage resources. New advances in archives, conservation
and preservation, economic development and other sectors are planting the
seeds for new collaborations that increase preservation and access to
archival collections, historical materials, buildings, and culture in the
Pacific Northwest.

Past attendees include archivists, records managers, librarians, community
leaders, staff and volunteers from historical societies, museums, historic
cemeteries, schools, historic preservation commissions, humanities groups,
history buffs and professional historians, economic development,
archaeologists, and local, tribal, state and federal governments.

People interested in making presentations are encouraged to contact the
program chair or submit a proposal no later than October 14, 2011. Proposals
