State Partnerships and Outreach Committee

The State Partnerships and Outreach Committee (SPOC) encourages archival professionals to reach beyond our own professional groups and present at historical, genealogical, and other conferences that attract users of archives and potential donors of archival material. These activities should promote archives and the archival profession.

The Committee also evaluates applications to the State Partnerships and Outreach Fund. Established by SSA in 2021, the State Partnerships and Outreach Fund helps cover SSA members’ costs when presenting at academic and professional meetings of allied professions. The Fund is also to be used for SSA session sponsorships at state or regional historical associations’ annual conferences. For information on how to apply, visit the SPOC Fund page.
