Question posed by the Nominating Committee: Nominating Committee members are responsible for identifying candidates for leadership who represent a variety of backgrounds and perspectives, as well as a passion for and commitment to advancing the profession. What would be your strategy for identifying qualified candidates?

The Society regularly tracks, reviews, and revises its strategic priorities, their outcomes and activities. The Nominating Committee has an active role in partnering with Council and staff to ensure that the candidates for elected leadership reflect sensitivity to and support of those strategic priorities. My strategy for identifying qualified candidates to run for leadership offices in SAA is multifaceted. First I would examine my immediate peer group. Being active in SAA and my regional organizations for years has given me the opportunity to meet and work with many great people. My active participation on Twitter and other social media sites has expanded my awareness of, and connections to, those in our field, their work experience, qualifications and views on issues. As an educator I meet many new and eager archivists ready to make their mark and sustain relationships with a number of them as they advance in their careers. Reviewing my professional activities in preparation for this autobiographical sketch was also a good reminder of colleagues past and present, many of whom have the talent and skills to take leadership roles in SAA and advance the organization in the process. Secondly I would tap my network of Archives Leadership Institute (ALI) alumni, who represent a variety of institutions, philosophies, education/training backgrounds and demographic groups. ALI alumni are those who have already expressed a desire to be leaders in our profession. Thirdly, I would review regional and affiliated associations for their leaders. Lastly, I would examine the present and recent past SAA leadership along with information from recent annual meetings, look for topics and names, note who is already out there involved and inquire with people I see ‘waiting in the wings.’ To identify good people from diverse backgrounds and provide a selection of individuals with leadership potential for the Society, a Nominating Committee member must exploit their social networks, affiliated organizations and SAA itself to their best advantage.
