In August, the Society of American Archivists welcomed the nomination of Dr. Colleen J. Shogan as the next Archivist of the United States at the National Archives and Records Administration. SAA’s membership looks to a leader who will defend the mission of the agency, which “drives openness, cultivates public participation, and strengthens our nation’s democracy through public access to high-value government records.”
In February, SAA endorsed a set of characteristics, prepared by the Council of State Archivists (CoSA), for the next Archivist of the United States.
We look forward to partnering with Dr. Shogan to continue supporting archives and archival work across the country.
