Section for New Professionals – Summer Seminar 2016

The Archives and Records Association Section for New Professionals will be holding its annual Summer Seminar on Monday June 13, 2016. The event is being held at the Friends’ Meeting House in Manchester. The event is free and open to members and non-members who are at the start of their career in archives, records management or conservation, both prospective and newly qualified.

This year’s programme includes the launch of the new SfNP after the Section recently reviewed its mission. The Section exists to support those in the first 5 years of their career in the recordkeeping professions. The programme for the day can be viewed here.

This year the event will feature talks from a variety of professionals at different stages in their careers, offer opportunities for networking and discussion, and sees the return of our popular recruitment panel.

Emily Hick, a qualified conservator with a range of experience including work overseas, will also feature on the recruitment panel.

Places are free but must be booked in advance. To reserve your place, please visit our Eventbrite page by June 9.
