The deadline for submitting proposals to the SAA Program Committee for next year's conference was Oct. 1. Now that we have had time to review the submissions, we are pleased to announce the WCRT endorsements! We are backing 2 proposals this year:
1. Activists, Nuns, and Heiresses: Breaking Stereotypes of Women's Historical Collections, chaired by Beth Myers of the Women and Leadership Archives, Loyola University.
2. 75 Years of International Women's Collecting: Legacies, Successes, Obstacles, and New Directions, chaired by Danelle Moon of the Special Collections and Archives, San Jose State University.
We will update the membership on the status of these proposals as soon as we hear ourselves. Thank you to everyone for organizing such strong entries for SAA 2011.
