Help Bring MAC Home in 2018

Chicago last hosted the Spring Meeting of the Midwest Archives Conference (MAC) in April 2010. At its May 2015 meeting, the MAC Council reviewed a proposal from Vice President David McCartney to hold the 2018 Spring Meeting in Chicago. The CAA Steering Committee wants to hear from CAA members and anyone else in the Chicago area interested in helping to bring MAC back to Chicago in 2018.

The MAC Council will select a city for the 2018 Spring Meeting in April 2016. CAA would like to submit a proposal to the MAC Council strengthening the case for Chicago as host city before that meeting. And should the MAC Council select Chicago to host its 2018 Spring Meeting, volunteers will be needed to serve on the Local Arrangements Committee. You can read more about the MAC meeting planning process on the MAC website here:

Do you have a passion for Chicago and the many fine archival institutions based in the Chicago area? Do you love the idea of attending MAC in your own fair city, or one of its many fine suburbs (we’re looking at you, Evanston)? Then share your passion by contacting and volunteering to help bring MAC back home.
