Call for Participants: Business or Religious Archives

Whether you neglected the CEO’s new initiative, grossly overspent your budget, or overestimated your capabilities, the Newark Business Archives session “Mistakes…I’ve made a few” provides a forum for presenters and attendees to share cringe-worthy experiences.  Adapted from a recent session at AAM, the session begins with panelists sharing one or more of the biggest mistakes they have made in their professional career and the lessons learned.  In contrast to the session “The Best Idea I Ever Had,” we invite you to share your mistakes…after all…we’ve all made a few.
MARAC is engaging in crowdsourcing to populate the panel for this session.  The panel will consist of 3 presenters who will share their most cringe-worthy experience that can be presented in 10 minutes.  To participate, please email a description of your experience as well as a brief biography to Tammy Hamilton at by Friday, December 2nd.  All submissions will be reviewed and potential participants contacted by Friday, December 16th.
Event details are listed below.  For further information about this session please contact Tammy Hamilton at the email listed above or 717-508-1988.
