EAS Section Steering Committee Call for Candidates - Extension

  • 1.  EAS Section Steering Committee Call for Candidates - Extension

    Posted 14 days ago

    The Encoded Archival Standards (EAS) Section is seeking candidates for three positions: one junior co-chair and two Steering Committee members. The successful candidates will serve a two-year term (August 2021-August 2023); the junior-co-chair will automatically become senior co-chair for the second year of their term. Nominees must be current members of the Society of American Archivists to be considered.


    The EAS Section has recently completed a survey regarding the use of encoded archival standards in the profession and intends to continue to use the results of that survey to inform its activities in the upcoming year. The Section will be looking to develop education and outreach opportunities to meet needs identified in the survey -- if this is something that interests you, please consider joining EAS leadership!
