Today is the first full day of the Fall 2012 Mid-Atlantic Regional Archives Conference (MARAC) meeting here in Richmond, VA. MARAC was last in Richmond eleven (!) years ago. At this meeting, the conference is celebrating its 40th Anniversary / Birthday!
I came down to the meeting yesterday with that guy Ed from Pittsburgh. He and I (and another colleague) celebrated MARAC's birthday by playing a little golf. Once we got to the hotel - it was committee meetings for the remainder of the day. Today is sessions and a reception this evening. Tomorrow the meeting will have its last session, business meeting and then I will head home. At the business meeting, I will be presenting on the recent membership survey that was conducted.
I am grateful to the individual who agreed to drive me home - as Ed in Pittsburgh, while he came to the launchpad on Wednesday evening and then drove me here on Thursday morning, is not heading back through the DC area on his way home.
