    The 2019 New England Archivists Nominating Committee seeks nominations for the following: 


    NEW ENGLAND ARCHIVISTS ARCHIVAL ADVOCACY AWARD

    If you know an individual or organization that has provided extraordinary support—politically, financially, or through public advocacy—for New England archival programs and records, please consider nominating this person or organization for the NEA Archival Advocacy Award. Nominees need not be a member of NEA and do not even need to be in the New England region to be considered. This is a wonderful opportunity to recognize advocates for archives. See the NEA website for criteria for eligibility, previous award recipients, and more details.


    NEW ENGLAND ARCHIVISTS DISTINGUISHED SERVICE AWARD

    If you know a colleague who has been a leader in promoting and furthering the objectives of NEA, please consider recognizing them by nominating them for the NEA Distinguished Service Award. This award provides a way to showcase the leadership our members bring to the profession. Please see the NEA website for criteria for eligibility, previous award recipients, and more details

    Nominations for both awards must be submitted by MARCH 1, 2019. Please send nominations and supporting documentation, as well as any questions, to Ellen Doon, Immediate Past President, at ipp@newenglandarchivists.org

    ​Dear New England Archivists members:

    The field of archives is changing every day -- and this is your chance to help shape the evolving profession in the New England region. Participate in NEA's annual Membership Survey to help us better serve you and our profession. If you are a current member or even if your membership has lapsed, we are interested your feedback. Your responses will be completely anonymous.

    The survey, which takes about 15-20 minutes, includes questions about general NEA membership, meetings and events, education/training, NEA roundtables, and how NEA communicates with members. At the end of the survey, current NEA members can enter to win a prize: a free year of membership in NEA!

    The survey will be open until Saturday, February 16, 2019, at 11:59pm. The NEA Membership Committee thanks you for your participation.

    The New England Archivists Mentoring Program is seeking volunteers to serve as Mentoring Liaisons. We are looking for three Mentoring Liaisons to take on support roles in Mentoring Circles. Liaisons will provide program information to participants and assist mentors with logistical tasks, including scheduling meetings and acting as mediators when issues or concerns arise within a circle. Liaisons will help mentors brainstorm discussions and activities as needed. The Mentoring Liaisons serve for two years as members of the Membership Committee. They report directly to the Mentoring Administrator and keep the Membership Committee Chair and the NEA Board informed about circle activities.

    First launched in 2013 by the Roundtable for Early Professionals and Students (REPS), the NEA Mentoring Program offers members the opportunity to participate in Mentoring Circles, which are small groups that typically consist of four to six mentees and two co-mentors. Diverging from the traditional one-on-one mentoring model, the circle model fosters not only mentoring relationships between the mentors and the mentees, but also peer mentoring relationships among the mentees and between the co-mentors. More information about the program is available here:
    https://newenglandarchivists.org/mentoring.

    In the most recent cycle, five Mentoring Circles consisted of ten mentors and more than twenty mentees. The Circles are supported by the Mentoring Liaisons, who help to schedule meetings and communicate with participants. This rewarding opportunity is a great way to network, build your resume, and become more involved with the NEA community. If you are interested in volunteering for one of the three Mentoring Liaison positions, please email a letter of interest detailing your relevant experience, reasons for applying for the position, and your availability to commit to a two-year term, to the Mentoring Administrator, Jessica Holden, at
    jessica.holden@umb.edu by November 15, 2018.

    The New England Archivists Representatives-at-Large seek NEA members to serve on the Awards Committees to help review applications for the following:


    -- Hale Professional Development Award
    -- Haas Records Management Award
    -- A/V Professional Development Award

    You need only be a current NEA member in good standing to volunteer; no prior experience with NEA or with awards committees is required, making this a great opportunity for both new and seasoned members to get involved with NEA. The review and discussion of applications is all conducted virtually, so no travel or in-person meetings are required. Applications for these awards will be accepted starting in early December, and winners will be chosen by February. For more information on NEA awards and scholarships, see: newenglandarchivists.org/awards.

    To volunteer, send an email to the NEA Representatives-at-Large (RepAtLarge@newenglandarchivists.org) with your name, contact info, and the name of the award selection committee(s) on which you would like to serve by Tuesday, November 20th. If we receive more volunteers than we have spaces for, volunteers will be selected at random.
