Business Meetings

Business Meetings
of the Research Group on Manuscript Evidence

The Research Group has held its Business Meetings frequently at the Annual International Congress on Medieval Studies, held in May at Kalamazoo, where various of our Trustees, Associates, Advisors, and Volunteers gather. Our blog for our Activities, year by year, at the International Congress on Medieval Studies cites these Business Meetings for individual years, but recently our practice has expanded to highlight the Open Business Meetings at the Congress (2015–).

Now, these Meetings are announced by Posters set in our copyright font RGME Bembino, and accompanied by their one-page Agendas available at the Meetings and, subsequently, on this website.

Concise Agenda & Record

Poster, set in RGME Bembino, announcing the 2017 Business Meeting at the 52nd International Congress on Medieval StudiesThese Open Business Meetings, open to all, are accompanied by a one-page Agenda, which reports our current accomplishments, aims, needs, and wishes, with invitations to contribute to our activities, mission, and further planning.

Our practice is to “unveil” the Agenda at its Meeting, use its plan as a guide or touchstone for the reports and discussions, and then circulate the Agenda more widely afterward, both in printed form and in downloadable form on our website.

Thus they continue to serve as records, reports, and models well after the events.

The Agendas for our Open Business Meetings remain available for consultation and inspiration:

How these Meetings stand within the Programs of our Congress Activities overall for each of these years is reported, and sometimes illustrated, in the Congress Reports:

Now, as the active functions of the Open Business Meetings gather momentum, we open a Page dedicated to them. If you see more ways that the Meetings and their Page might be helpful, please let us know. After all, their momentum encourages a continuing interaction, which does not depend upon the Annual Meeting alone as a spur for suggestions, discussion, and action.
