Seeking WARs co-chair nominations!

  • 1.  Seeking WARs co-chair nominations!

    Hello! We are still looking for someone to run for WARs co-chair for the coming year! If you or someone you know would be interested in serving, please contact the current co-chairs.

    Who should consider serving?  Any member of both SAA and WARs who is interested in issues that affect the status of women within the profession and the Society, and who wishes to be involved with encouraging the participation of women in all phases of SAA business and other activities and in the archival profession as a whole.

    What does it involve?  In addition to preparing the contents of the Section's annual meeting, the co-chair will co-facilitate creative ways to create a positive environment for women throughout SAA and the profession, identify and look for ways to bring women's professional archival issues forward for consideration, coordinate with other sections whose work overlaps our own, make recommendations to Council, and participate in creating reports, surveys, and other formal documentation to move the work of the section forward. The time commitment would involve once quarterly meetings and events with the steering committee, and potentially co-chair meetings throughout the year.

    What should I do if I'm interested?  If you would like to nominate yourself or a colleague, please contact the WARs co-chairs listed below, to submit a nomination or to find out more information.  The deadline for submitting nominations is Friday May 27, 2022 with candidate statements to be sent to SAA in early June, and electronic balloting to be held in late June or early July, with results to be announced at our virtual annual meeting in August.

    Thanks very much for your consideration!
