Congratulations to CARA member Rebekah McFarland, who was recently named as one of the winners of the Archives and Archivists of Color Travel Fund Award sponsored by the Chicago Area Archivists. Rebekah is the archivist for the Sisters of the Living Word and often works as a project archivist for other institutions, most recently the College of American Pathologists and the Chicago History Museum. She is also a bookbinder.
The AAC Travel Fund Award will support Rebekah's travel and participation at the 2019 Midwest Archives Conference, where she will be among the panelists on the "Imposter Syndrome" session. The conference will be held in Detroit on April 3-6.
Please congratulate Rebekah on her success, and if you are traveling to MAC this year, make sure you say hi!
