Four years ago, news of the impending closure of the Georgia Archives galvanized the profession and local, state, and national organizations mobilized their resources to mitigate this worst-case scenario. Join us for an interactive discussion with activists in the “counter-closure movement” who will share their perspectives on how the profession was able to roll back this decision. We’ll explore what worked well, what tactics were less successful, and how SAA and CoSA – as member-driven organizations – can best respond to future public policy challenges.
