What a wonderful occasion! A celebration of forty years of growing and strengthening the archival community of Georgia through association in the Society of Georgia Archivists. A celebration of forty years of service of the archival community of Georgia to the citizens of this wonderful and historic state. A celebration of forty years of contribution to the archival profession of the United States—no, not just the United States, but every part of the world where Georgia Archive and Provenance have been and continue to be read. This is a great occasion to bask in the pleasure of long-time and good company. It is the perfect occasion to look at where our Society of Georgia Archivists fits into the historical firmament of archival associations and how well we archivists are doing at telling the story of the contribution of archival enterprise to society.
