LearningTimes Supports Museum Association's Online Conferences

Kate Theimer, ArchivesNext blogger and author of Web 2.0 Tools and Strategies for Archives and Local History Collection, shares insights about online events for museums and local history organizations, citing the work done in the field by LearningTimes.
In a blog post entitled How can more members get involved with the SAA [Society of American Arcivists] Annual Meeting – and involved in general? Kate Theimer writes:

I found it curious that SAA was having to apply for a grant to fund “virtual access” to the annual meeting when so many other comparable organizations were doing it right now. So, I picked up the phone and called the people at Learning Times who seem to be supporting most of our peer organizations’ online conference options. They were very forthcoming about the costs and resources required to provide a virtual component for an annual meeting, and they stated that most organizations they work with make a profit on their online conference options.
