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!

Thanks to all who came to Happy Hour last Wednesday! It is good to know that there is support and interest in our community to keep SeaAA going! We did have 3 people express interest in serving on the next Steering Committee. Please nominate yourself or another person (with their permission) by sending an email to us so that we can have a full roster of 5 Officers.
The Seattle Area Archivists asks you to please attend a special topic Happy Hour at 6 PM on March 8th at the Elysian Tangletown pub in Wallingford.
The Steering Committee would like to discuss the future of SeaAA and we need to hear input from our membership. SeaAA has been a positive presence in the Seattle archival community for more than 30 years, however, we have recently been unsuccessful in recruiting new officers to serve on the Steering Committee. We have been operating with only three members for almost a year now (there are five established positions) and the current officers’ terms all expire at the end of June 2017. Please come and bring your energy and ideas to discuss how SeaAA might continue. The organization needs guidance and leadership from within its membership to continue to operate successfully. If we are unable to find at least 3 new officers, ideally 5 to return to the norm, SeaAA will unfortunately be forced to disincorporate at the end of the current officers’ terms. We hope to see many of you at this special happy hour – the first round is on SeaAA, so please join us!
