Seattle Area Archivist Meeting!

Please join Seattle Area Archivists and The Winthrop Group at Folio Seattle for our next quarterly meeting! On Friday, February 21st, from 12:30-2pm, we’ll be hearing from an exciting array of business archivists on the inventive ways they leverage their collections.

Business archives programs can serve as vital resources for company executives, employees, and other departments, as well as help guide marketing and branding initiatives, along with engaging a variety of communities. In serving the evolving business needs of their organizations, archivists have developed creative approaches to manage collections, foresee opportunities, and build connections, at times wearing multiple hats.

Come join us at Folio Seattle to learn more about corporate archives in the area, including Microsoft, Pendleton Woolen Mills, Laird Norton, and about other heritage activities from the business community. This event is free and open to the public with RSVP. Light refreshments will be provided.
