Welcome to the CoSA/SAA 2013 local host committee blog

Welcome to the Council of State Archivists/Society of American Archivists 2013 annual meeting local host committee blog! Over the next several months we will be posting guides to help you plan your trip to CoSA/SAA’s joint annual meeting in New Orleans. Please bookmark our URL or subscribe to our RSS feed for updates.

You may have noticed that this blog is hosted through gnoarchivists.org, the website for our local group, Greater New Orleans Archivists. We are hosting the CoSA/SAA 2013 blog here because in just over a year, New Orleans archivists will also welcome the Society of Southwest Archivists 2014 annual meeting. Given how many conferences come to town, we thought it would be good to have a permanent home for a local arrangements blog that can be updated for each new conference.

This blog will feature dining, entertainment, and shopping guides, logistical travel/hotel information, and general information about the city of New Orleans. If you have any special requests, we’d be delighted to take suggestions. You can contact local host committee blogger, Eira Tansey, via email or tweet her @eiratansey.

We were very inspired by last year’s incredible San Diego local host committee blog. They’ve set a high bar for us, and we look forward to sharing as much about our beloved hometown with you as we can while we all prepare for this year’s meeting.
