New Steering Committee Nominations

The Seattle Area Archivists Steering Committee would like to thank everyone who attended our special happy hour last week to discuss the future of SeaAA. We were so pleased with the turnout and it was clear from the meeting that our membership wants SeaAA to continue! We made a call for nominations and volunteers to serve on the steering committee and have already heard from several of you who expressed interest. If you have not already contacted us with a nomination or to volunteer, we ask that you please do so by March 31. If we have exactly five potential new members, we will proceed without an election. If we receive more than five, we will hold an election in April. Thank you again to everyone!
