Hello fellow NDSA members!

The Five College Digital Preservation Task Force is hosting a regional  
NDSA meeting on October 30th.  It will most likely be held at the  
University of Massachusetts Amherst.  We are still working out the  
details, but we envision a day-long event with presentations in the  
morning and CAMP-like discussions in the afternoon - discussion themes  
generated by participants.  The presentations will include an opening  
from a representative about the NDSA and its activities and then  
presentations from regional NDSA members on their NDSA work and  
relevant institutional work.  It will be a chance to share what we are  
all working on.

Presentations from NDSA regional members could either be 15-20 minute  
presentations, a 5 minute lightening talk, or a poster presentation  
that might generate further discussion for the afternoon.

If you are interested in attending, whether or not you'd like to  
present, please let us know at this site: RSVP  

Jennifer Gunter King and I are coordinating the event so if you have  
any questions you can email one of us.

- Meghan and Jennifer
