Announcing the IASA Conference 2021

Announcing the IASA Conference 2021

Last year, IASA’s 2020 virtual conference successfully provided us with a wide range of experiences and new ways of interacting as a professional community. Although we all missed having a face-to-face meeting, we realised that to a great extent we can continue online to exchange ideas, projects and create new expectations for sound and audiovisual archives.

Given the ongoing uncertainties over international  travel, this year IASA’s conference will again be held online, from 27th to 30th September 2021.

IASA Treasurer Yuri Shimoda

Dear IASA colleagues,

I am pleased to announce that Yuri Shimoda is joining the Executive Board as IASA's new Treasurer. Yuri is the Digital Projects and Preservation Specialist at the University of California, Los Angeles Ethnomusicology Archive. We are grateful Yuri will be joining the Board and we all look forward to working with her. She was acclaimed by the Board to replace acting interim Treasurer, Tommy Sjöberg. 

Past IASA President James McCarthy (1939 - 2021)

Former President of IASA, James McCarthy, has died. It is with sincere gratitude that we share news of his passing, for his service to the organization. We send our condolences to his family and loved ones. James served on the Executive Board as President from 1993-1996 and as Past President from 1996-1999.

Have you signed up to IASA’s mailing list?

IASA's public email list is open to anyone including non-members of IASA. It serves to exchange information about IASA and about the universe of professional sound and audio-visual archiving, and it allows subscribers to seek advice from others.

The list was migrated to a new platform in December 2020. Some subscribers to the old IASA list have not yet signed up to new one. Signing up is necessary, even if you were a subscriber before, to ensure you can post to the list, and read messages from others.
