Many thanks to all speakers, delegates, sponsors and supporters of the ARA Conference in Glasgow in August 2018. You all helped to make it both the best-attended conference ever and arguably the most open and challenging. We tackled a huge range of issues around People in Records, People Using Records and People Looking After Records. Hopefully, you all took away ideas, inspiration, motivation and determination to improve, change, innovate and more. We owe special thanks to our colleagues in ARA Scotland for such a warm and enthusiastic welcome!We will be revisiting some of the challenges thrown down in Glasgow and checking on progress made when we re-assemble for the 2019 ARA Annual Conference, which will be held at the Queens Hotel, Leeds from 28 August to 30 August 2019. The theme(s) and call for papers will issue around the beginning of November 2018. Do please make a note in your diaries and consider submitting a proposal to speak. Look out also for details of the programme and ‘early bird’ offers from around February 2019. In the meantime, to refresh your memory or catch up on sessions you may have missed in Glasgow, check out the Video pages via the above links, where you can also access video sessions from Manchester in 2017. We will keep the resources, summaries and conference handbook for 2018 on the site for a while longer.
