Another Year Has Gone By
The end of the semester is here and the AMIA @ NYU students are finishing finals, preparing for graduation, and starting summer internships! We held our last meeting of the semester on Wed., May 1st and are very excited for the upcoming events this Fall and next Spring, and for the MIAP 10-yr Anniversary Celebration.
To the graduating second-year MIAP students, you are all incredible, passionate, and brilliant A/V archivists who are bound for great things. Congratulations again on winning the President’s Service Award, and thank you for the events, activities, and conversations that you coordinated throughout the year that have continued building this chapter. Your passion, enthusiasm, and dedication have inspired the current first-year students to organize, mobilize, and pursue all interests. You have shown us that the possibilities are endless, and we intend to continue with this in mind. We would also like to extend our thanks to Alicia Kubes, our outstanding advisor with an endless amount of enthusiasm, passion, and support.
And finally thanks to all the AMIA @ NYU members, who donated time and energy to support our mission and act gracefully on behalf of AMIA, NYU, and our profession. We enthusiastically look forward to next year and to meeting those who will be joining us.
Best of luck to all as the semester comes to an end and you take off on your summer adventures!
