Please join us at the University of Missouri - Kansas City for the Kansas City Archivists (KCAA) Fall Symposium on Thursday, November 21 from 1:00pm-5:30pm.

The theme for the day will be "Archivists as Teachers" and will include a slate of speakers sharing their ideas for using your primary source materials to teach students of all ages. The event will show how educational efforts naturally serve as active advocacy for both our archives and the larger profession, therein bolstering the outreach work that we do daily.

Afterwards attendees will be treated to a tour of the Marr Sound Archives and the LaBudde Special Collections.
