We had our CCAN (Cambridgeshire Community Archives Network) executive committee meeting yesterday and some really positive things came out of it. CCAN has made such a big difference in moving forwards the digital capture and recording of archives in the county and we are looking forward to some great new CCAN groups joining us over the next few months.
Our AGM is coming up to which all CCAN groups are invited to come along and if they wish, bring a display. The AGM will in the conference room of the Central Library Cambridge, which is on the third floor right next to the Cambridgeshire Collection and opposite the café. The AGM will start at 2pm, on Thursday 7th April 2011, and Chris Jakes from the Cambs Collection will be giving us a talk on archives – and you will get chance to network with other CCAN groups from across the county, catch up on CCAN news and show off some of the things your groups have been doing. Look forward to seeing you there!!!
If you would like to know more about how to get involved with CCAN just use the Contact Me form, leave your name and number and I will get back to you.
