    Hi all,

    Call for Proposals:

    Chicago Open Archives: The Unconference

    Conference hosted by the Chicago Area Archivists

    Date: Friday, October 23

    Sessions starting at 9am


    Proposals are due by Friday, September 25 at 5pm. 


    CAA invites you to participate in our first ever, Chicago Open Archives Unconference. 


    In celebration of American Archives Month, Chicago Open Archives connects community members with the collections, programs, and services of archival repositories throughout the city and suburbs.


    Due to COVID-19 precautions, this year's COA celebration will be in the form of a remote conference. Because many conferences across the Midwest and U.S. have been cancelled, we are accepting proposals on a variety of topics relevant to archives and special collections. We are accepting individual (20-30 minutes) and group (50 minutes) session proposals. Sessions that had already been accepted for a cancelled conference will be given priority. A confirmation of presenting at the cancelled conference should be included in the proposal.


    To submit a proposal, fill out the form here. If you have any questions, please contact 


    Can't make it to this event? Don't worry – there will be more events throughout the year at a variety of dates, times, and locations. Have an idea for a CAA event? Contact!
