We are one week away from the Boston Regional Forum! The finalized program for the Boston Regional Forum is now available and includes information on lunch options, the post-event mixer, and parking/transportation.
A finalized program is now available: https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/ADC/pages/455213059/Boston+Regional+Forum+-+May+2018
Selected by the community vote through registration, the workshop will provide an overview of ArchivesSpace Plugins, thoughtfully crafted for experiences of all levels and skills. A laptop is not required to follow along, but is welcome if you’d like to try anything out.
We will break for lunch in an “on your own” format. Please feel free to enjoy the nice Spring blooms and explore any of these lunch options nearby: https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/ADC/pages/538640385/Lunch+options
After the program’s conclusion, we’ll be heading over to the Five Horses Tavern at Davis Square for an optional (and fun!) opportunity to continue our conversations in a more casual and personal way. Information is available here: https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/ADC/pages/455213059/Boston+Regional+Forum+-+May+2018#BostonRegionalForum-May2018-Afterforummixer/reception/happyhour
If you plan to attend the forum, please consider volunteering for special tasks throughout the day. This will not be a full day commitment, but rather for specific assigned segments throughout the day, such as notetaking or photography.
