New England Archivists:
Are you interested in being a leader in the archival profession? Serving on the NEA Board is a great way to build your resume, network with other archivists in the community, and help make decisions that will drive the profession forward. Having undertaken some compelling new initiatives (e.g., Inclusion and Diversity, the Journal of Contemporary Archival Studies, Mentoring, Roundtables), NEA is currently writing a new strategic plan. Will you help us make NEA a better organization for all our members?
The Nominating Committee is seeking potential archival leaders to run for four open Executive Board positions. This year's election will include:
-- Vice President/President-Elect
-- two Representative-at-Large positions
In the past, early career, mid-career, and even late-career archivists have run for positions. You can nominate yourself or a colleague. If you are interested in stepping into a regional leadership position or know someone who would be a good candidate, use the nomination form here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/NEABallot2015
Nominations are due by July 15. All submissions are anonymous and confidential.
More information on the responsibilities assigned to the Vice President/President-Elect, Secretary, and Representatives-at-Large can be found here: http://www.newenglandarchivists.org/board
