Call for CAA Steering Candidates

10 Feb 2022 3:06 PM | Deleted user

CAAers, we are currently seeking candidates to run for the CAA Steering Committee!

Serving on Steering is a great way to meet fellow archivists, hone your leadership skills, and get an "insider's view" into the running of a non-profit organization--all in service to the profession! This is a great time to get involved as well, as CAA will be celebrating its 40th Anniversary in the year ahead and there are lots of changes afoot. The past couple years have called for new ways of operating and connecting with our colleagues, and we will continue to strive to adapt and grow as an organization.

Regular responsibilities

  • About one meeting per month.
  • Leadership roles (everyone shall choose one role): treasurer, vice chair, secretary, subcommittee and interest groups liaisons, communications specialist.
  • Routine communication with fellow Steering members via Slack channels.
  • Assist in developing new policies and procedures for the CAA.
  • Monthly time commitment of about 5 hours per month, with a little more during the "busy period" of December through March.

Who can run?
