#JoinCAA2021 Membership Drive: Week 5!

02 Mar 2021 8:57 AM | Jill Waycie

Welcome to Week 5 of CAA's 2021 Membership Drive! Prizes are still available - JOIN, REFER, or RENEW now!

This week we're hearing from Jessica Smith, Digital Processing Archivist at North Park University and Archives Assistant at the Chicago History Museum (and recent graduate of Dominican University's MLIS program):

I was encouraged to join CAA as an intern at the Chicago History Museum in 2018. My BA is in Anthropology and, at the time, I wasn't quite sure how to best develop a career working with museum collections. Joining CAA exposed me to a world of LIS opportunities at museums and elsewhere in the Chicago-area that I never knew existed, and I credit the amazing people I have met through CAA as inspiring me to pursue the MLIS in 2019. Renewing my CAA membership every year is a no-brainer - it's affordable, continuously grows my professional network, and offers incredible learning opportunities at events like the Chicago Open Archives. CAA is the glue that holds the Chicago-area LIS community together - forgive the clich√© - and I look forward to many more years as a member.

Remember: the first 10 new members to sign up before March 16 will receive a CAA-branded journal! If someone referred you to CAA, add their name in the Referring Member field and they could win too! We'll pick 2 referring winners at random during the members meeting in March for a gift card prize.
