Free conference registration for Indigenous People, African Nova Scotians and Black/African-descendants

Dear friends and colleagues,

The keynote speaker, Camille Callison, member of the Tahltan Nation, has requested that in the spirit of reciprocity for her sharing knowledge with APLA, we extend free registration to Indigenous people working in libraries, archives or cultural memory institutions or in their own communities in culture heritage residing in or originating from Indigenous communities located within the Atlantic provinces. As well she requested that, in recognizing the unique history in the Atlantic provinces, APLA extended that same offer to African Nova Scotian and Black/African-descended community members in the region working on cultural heritage in their communities.

We apologize for the short notice, but encourage members of these communities to contact our Registration Chair, Jason Levy ( to register, or our Treasurer, Bill Slauenwhite ( for reimbursement.

The Conference Committee would like to thank Camille for the generous and thoughtful decision to share her honorarium with the broader community.  

Registration closes Friday, June 4th at 4pm.

Take care and be well,

Chair, APLA 2021 Conference Committee
