•    How and when to use an intervention?
•    Who should be involved?
•    What problems can be addressed?
•    How to prepare?
•    How to manage the fallout?

This conference is designed for leadership teams, formation and vocation directors, vicars, rectors, pastors, canons, personnel directors and supervisors. The format will be an adult learning model.

Envisioning the Future of Catholic Religious Archives

Runs through July 13.

An important conference for those in our communities entrusted with archives is coming up. Entitled “Envisioning the Future of Catholic Religious Archives,” the conference will take place at Boston College on July 11-13, 2018. The program will explore issues surrounding religious collections and discuss available options to preserve and make these significant collections accessible to religious communities, scholars and the larger public. This website provides extensive information on the conference, including registration information.

A working conference. This meeting is the first of its kind, building on the expertise of religious leaders, archivists, and historians and scholars who value our collections. This global approach will provide an opportunity for these groups to meet and chart a course for the future of religious archives in the United States. As a religious leader, you are responsible for shaping how your congregation’s contribution to society will be preserved. At this point, your knowledge of this topic may be limited. We hope that your attendance at the conference will result in discerning a course of action. We need your experience to initiate a plan to assure that these archival materials will be permanently preserved.

Join us in the adventure. Providing an opportunity for lively discussion among the three constituencies means that we want every group to be represented. We are looking for engaged religious leaders who can share the challenges in building a plan for the future of religious archives. If you are interested in attending, we ask that you complete the Interest Application (click on “Conference Information”). The application deadline is April 14. Invited participants will be notified by May 8.

Why apply? We need your voice to assist us in developing a framework and plan to create a public white paper to promote the development of a national strategic plan to preserve these collections.

Please accept the challenge and consider applying. We have worked closely with Boston College to keep the cost at $250 so that it will be affordable.

If you have questions about the program or the conference details that are not covered on the website, please get in touch at catholicarchives@bc.edu.
