Twin Cities Archives Round Table Spring Meeting

Twin Cities Archives Round Table Spring Meeting
Tuesday May 22, 2012
12-1:00 PM Webinar

1:30-5:00PM TCART Meeting
St. Catherine’s University, Room 355 in Coeur de Catherine (see attached map)

The topic for discussion at our spring meeting will be grants, and writing and applying for grants.  Deadlines for mid-size and large Minnesota Historical and Cultural Grants are coming up in June, while small and structured grants have deadlines throughout the year.  We’ll share best practices and tips for applying for these grants.  A Grant Writer from MPR will also present best practices for grant writing.  Come with questions, a number of TCART members have received legacy grants over the past few years, and we will have a discussion about lessons learned and the types of projects that have been funded.

Additionally, we will conduct our spring business meeting, elect officers, and tour the St. Catherine University Archives.


Prior to the TCART meeting, thanks to Ellen Holt-Werle at Macalester College, you may also choose to attend a webinar from 12:00-1:00 PM, also in room 355 in Coeur de Catherine.  Webinar information:
