The AMIA Conference is nearly here!

The AMIA Conference is nearly upon us! Next week hundreds of moving image archivists and interested folk will be heading to Savannah, Georgia. You can find the program here. The AMIA conference is the best way to get connected, reconnect, learn, and collaborate and while not all of us can attend there are other ways to stay engaged.

Stay tuned to social media sites. Below we’ve listed our own as well as the official AMIA accounts.
