Having considered at length SAA’s strategic goals and financial resources, the SAA Council voted at its May 2015 meeting to propose to the membership a dues increase to take effect beginning July 1, 2016. The increase would apply to all member categories, would be implemented over a three-year period, and would average between 3% and 3.3% per year. The proposal is based on the Council’s unanimous support for maintaining a growth strategy for SAA as measured by the quality of its member services and the Society’s leadership role on behalf of archivists and the archives profession.
The following briefing paper will be discussed at the Annual Membership (Business) Meeting on Saturday, August 22, from 11:15 am to 12:30 pm in the Cleveland Convention Center, Room 26AB. Voting will not take place at the meeting. Discussions at the meeting will inform an all-member referendum on the issue to be conducted in the fall.
