Association for Recorded Sound Collections – Texas Chapter

This email is being sent to Texas ARSC members and Nauck customers.

As you may know, there was a Texas Chapter of ARSC which met in the Houston area between 1996 and 2005. Since that time the chapter has been inactive. Over the past year, several archives and collectors have expressed interest in reviving the chapter. This would probably involve meetings held in different parts of the state and not just in one city. It is our desire to imitate the unique nature of the national organization by catering to the needs and interests of both collectors and archivists.

An exploratory meeting will be held during the 50th Annual ARSC Conference at Bloomington, IN, May 11-14, 2016. We invite any Texas-based collectors, preservationists, archivists or researchers to join us at that meeting (time and place will be announced at the conference).

If you aren’t able to attend the conference but would be interested in being part of a Texas Chapter, please respond to this message. I will email a report of our discussions later in May.

Hope to see you next month in Bloomington,

Kurt Nauck (TX Chapter past President)
