Help shape the future of the Society of American Archivists' Students and New Professionals Section (SNAP)!
The SAA-SNAP Section provides educational outreach that furthers professional development, dialogue, and engagement. We host educational and networking webinars, twitter-chats, and other events; oversee the development and dialogue on our SNAP blog; help raise awareness of SAA's vast professional resources (career development webinars, resume reviews, mentoring, job and internship boards, etc.); and engage with SAA Student Chapters.
As an SAA-SNAP Section Committee member, you can help shape this dialogue and learn how to organize and host an educational event, engage leading professionals in conversation, build your professional network, and discover more about the workings of your profession. In the coming service term, you will be able to help us chart a new path for engaging with SAA student chapters, and continue to grow and develop our robust programming options for the SNAP community.
This special election is for the position of Vice Chair/Chair-Elect (elected, 2-year term of service): The Vice-Chair/Chair-Elect will serve the remainder of the 2023-2024 term as the Vice Chair, assisting the Chair in the operation of the section, serve as acting chair in the absence of the chair, and participating as a member of the steering committee. They will then serve as Chair for the 2024-2025 term. More details about these positions can be found at https://snaproundtable.wordpress.com/serve-with-snap/.
Please note that available positions include both elected and appointed positions, and you may choose to nominate yourself or others for this position. We strongly encourage students to nominate themselves for the SNAP Vice Chair/Chair-Elect if interested. Those running will see their name and statement on a ballot from the SAA, which is voted upon electronically by SNAP members. Duties will begin following the results of the special election.
