People interested in making presentations at the joint 2012 Northwest
Archivists/Oregon Heritage Conference are invited to submit proposals by
Oct. 14.

The conference will take place April 26-28 in Salem. 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, 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 Oct. 14.
