MACRAO Annual Conference logo

MACRAO's 2020 Annual Conference will be a virtual event. We're working to offer a broad selection of topics along with a keynote speaker and our usual awards and business meeting - all in an online format that can be accessed from anywhere!

There will be no cost for this year's conference, and since we're not traveling, there are also no hotel or food costs, so please plan to attend.

Save the dates! Wednesday through Friday, November 18-20. Complete details will be available here on the MACRAO website soon.

MACRAO responding to COVID-19

Travel budgets are a challenge for many MACRAO member institutions right now, so MACRAO is working to deliver networking and professional development opportunities virtually. One of the benefits of this approach is that we're able to welcome members who might have been unable to attend in the past due to cost or distance. This also gives us a wider pool of expertise and talent to work with as session presenters, either online, in-person, or in a hybrid format, and it seems likely that we'll continue to offer more remote access opportunities even if we're able to return to "normal" at some point in the future.

Higher education is facing new challenges due to COVID-19. So are our professional associations. MACRAO intends to continue to provide value to its members as we move ahead through this unique moment in our history.

Thanks for your patience and support.
