NEA taking the past into the future

Meet the NEA Candidates: REPS

2015-10-27 9:03 AM | Michelle Romero

NEA leadership has worked hard over the past few years to greatly expand member’s benefits and programs. On November 2nd voting for next year’s NEA leaders will begin. Make sure to read up on the candidates and vote for NEA’s future.

Our Representatives-at-Large are voting members on the Executive Board, liaisons with NEA standing committees, and serve on a variety of award and planning committees. They represent the general membership.

This year we have four candidates for one of the four Rep-at-Large positions (LISTED ALPHABETICALLY). Each candidate answered the question: What do you see as the major challenges for archivists in New England and what do you see as NEA’s role in addressing that challenge, over the next three years?
