About MAC 2022

Welcome to Madison, Wisconsin, host of the MAC 2022 Annual Meeting. Our conference theme of “Moving Archives Forward” is a nod to the state’s motto “Forward,” adopted in 1851 and meant to signify Wisconsin’s continuous drive to be a national leader. This also provides a useful lens through which to examine the archival profession. What are some of the professional, environmental, societal, and cultural factors that affect the way we move forward, the way we see trends, and the way we identify challenges and opportunities? How are we leaders? The city of Madison is located on ancestral Ho-Chunk land, a place their nation has called Teejop (day-JOPE) since time immemorial. Known for its extensive parks and bike trails, organic architecture, and scenic lakes, Madison is the place to be May 5-7, 2022!
