Run for Steering, and advocate for Chicago Archivists

27 Feb 2018 12:31 PM | Anonymous

In an ongoing series during CAA Steering Committee election time, we hear from George Kutsunis, current Steering Committee Chair.

There are lots of groups that advocate for our profession, providing everything from a recognized archiving credential to national advocacy to networking, but there is only one group that is looking out for archivists in Chicago, and that is the CAA.

The Steering Committee for Chicago Area Archivists is the best way to advocate for your profession at the local level. By joining Steering, you can highlight the work of local archivists, draw attention to local archives in distress and celebrate the collections that are only located here in Chicago.

Volunteering for the Steering or one of the subcommittees allows you to make an impact for your profession locally, and offers a huge return on your time investment. If you have gone to any of the panels, events or tours that the CAA hosts each year, I don't need to tell you what a perk having a local organization like the CAA is.

Please help us continue working to advocate our profession in a way that no national organization can. Run for Steering or join a committee. The deadline for submissions is Wednesday, March 21. 

Feel free to contact George or other Steering Committee members with questions.
