MASIS - meet-up planning

22 Nov 2023 12:26 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

While the MASIS group has been quiet we have still been holding meetings and events and we would like to take this opportunity to invite you to let the co-Chairs know what types of or topics for meetings would encourage you to participate in future MASIS virtual meet-ups.

Topics and ideas for future meeting that were discussed at our Fall get together included:

  • Where does your archive live in your organization (i.e. as a part of corporate services, Information Services, Clerk’s division, etc.) and how that helps and / or provides challenges for you,
  • Origin stories of how your municipal archives program came to exist,
  • What are you equipment needs and how easy / what are the challenges to getting what you need,
  • Archive Access vs Privacy,
  • Digital archiving,
  • Larger municipality issues and concerns vs small municipal archive issues and concerns,
  • Government accessions vs. private,
  • What supports do you get and where are they lacking, and
  • Friends of societies

If folks have other ideas or some topic ideas listed resonate more than others we encourage you to email either Jamie Sanford ( or Angela Fornelli ( to let us know.

We are hoping to schedule our next meeting for late January or early February and hold meetings every four months (for a total of 3 a year). Meetings will include a one minute update for all attendees, doodle polls to past participants on meeting dates, and hopefully lots of laughs and support.

Have a say in the MASIS group by reaching out to one or both of the MASIS co-Chairs.


Thank you,


Jamie & Angela
