The New England Archivists Membership Committee is in search of new volunteers to fill a variety of new and exciting positions. This is a great opportunity for archivists across the region, including students and new professionals, to get involved in their professional organization, network, and build that resume! No prior experience or volunteer experience is required. Committee meetings are generally held virtually (NEA provides Zoom for web conferencing), and most business is done by email, phone, or web conferencing.
We're looking for members who can start ASAP to focus on:
· Development (2-4 members; 3-year term)
Aided by membership survey data and the Development Task Force final report (2013), will define development plans for NEA, identify priorities for funding opportunities, identify new and existing sources of funding, and work with the NEA Treasurer on sustainable and responsible financial planning.
· Meet-up organization (1-2 members; 3-year term)
Will schedule and plan social meet-ups for NEA members at the Spring Meeting and throughout the year, occasionally in collaboration with other allied groups (such as Digital Commonwealth), and communicate with the Membership Chair and the Treasurer for budgeting and funding.
· Annual meeting coordination (2-3 members; 3-year term)
Will work collaboratively with the Local Arrangements Committee and other Spring Meeting organizers and Membership Committee groups to schedule and coordinate Membership Committee-sponsored events (e.g., resume review, practice interviews, NEA informational tables, etc.).
Please contact Sam Howes, Membership Committee Chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your current contact information, which position(s) interest you, and a brief statement of interest by Friday, August 31, 2018.
