2023 Annual Meeting ~ Salem, OR!

May 3 - 5, 2023

Looking Back, Moving Forward

NWA’s last in-person conference was in 2019 and there have been many changes in the world and in our profession since that time. We are excited to gather – some again, some for the first time – to meet and learn from each other.

Looking Back, Moving Forward provides an opportunity to hear how and what others are doing; to reflect on our work; to share what we are embracing and what we are letting go; to learn from new methods, new voices, and new perspectives; and to renew our commitment to the impact and importance of archives.
