Fall Meeting Registration Now Open!

For over 150 years, College Park has been an area of innovating firsts in agriculture, flight, and education. No wonder when 33 archivists decided to meet to discuss issues relating to archives, it was in the Katherine Anne Porter Room (then located in McKeldin Library) at the University of Maryland in College Park. There, an organization of archivists from the mid-Atlantic region was created on June 23, 1972. The organization became known as the Mid-Atlantic Regional Archives Conference (MARAC). College Park and the University of Maryland are pleased to welcome you to celebrate MARAC’s 50th Anniversary!

Join MARAC for sessions, workshops, three plenaries, two receptions plus the Meet & Greet, and nine tours, all spread across four days instead of three. Our program theme, “Our Roots Illuminate Our Future,” will provide an opportunity to look back at 50 years of archival camaraderie, education, and progress, and see how we can use our past to illuminate the future of our profession and MARAC. 

October 19: A variety of pre-conference workshops, tours, and meet-and-greet reception
October 20: Sessions and 50th anniversary activities

October 21-22: More sessions, Friday evening reception, business meeting, and more
