Alas, I couldn’t attend this year’s Archives & Records Association conference in Brighton. But I followed much of the programme on twitter (hashtag #ara12) – and hugely appreciate all those who took the trouble to live tweet the conference.
One thing that really struck was the plethora of comments on the final day about the need for “thinking time” – otherwise known as reflection. And the need for recordkeepers (ok, most tweeters called them “archivists” but…) to be flexible, dynamic, develop their skills in a wide range of areas and so on.
A manifesto for continuing professional development among individuals if ever I heard one… hoping that the proposals for association-wide CPD around and beyond Registration bear fruit.
