On April 14, 2023, members of the Archives and Archivists of Color (AAC) interest group gathered at the Level Two Restaurant in the Hyatt Centric Hotel, the site of this year’s Midwest Archives Conference. AAC members enjoyed drinks while discussing the latest developments in archival practice. Special guests included Angelica Hernandez and olivier, winners of the 2023 AAC Travel Fund Award. They will be sharing their conference experiences in a future news post, but for now, we send them our warmest congratulations. Also present was Jennifer Ho, a founding member of the AAC interest group and the creator of the Travel Fund Award. Jennifer has moved out of the Chicago region to California, so this was a wonderful opportunity to catch up. All in all, it was a lovely evening, and we look forward to our next chance to meet in person.
