What Past Attendees have to say about NAGARA Annual Conferences:


  • I have been to many many professional conferences -- and none have offered or fostered the sense of community and support that you all did. I am impressed!
  • I think this is a wonderful conference, and I appreciate the sessions are from working professionals and not vendors (like other conferences).
  • These conferences are of great value and relevance to state and local government employees. Many of our ARMA chapter members come from government. Many of those same people cannot afford to attend the big ticket conferences because their agencies simply do not have budgets to send employees for training costing over $1,000 just for the conference itself. NAGARA offers relevant and timely educational sessions for government archivists and records managers at a fraction of the cost.
  • Exceptional conference -- love the audience of members -- Archivists and Records Managers in these industries are remarkable.  Everyone has a story and hold the keys to the castle so to speak!
