Steering Committee Meeting, January 13, 2023

Minutes of January 13, 2023, meeting of Archival History Steering Committee


In attendance: Dane Flansburgh, Colin Post, Katja Hering, Bernadette Floresca, Susan Tucker


Colin reported on the list of journals he and Katja have consulted and notified us that he will be posting to the Listserv for nominations. 


We will begin reading in March, giving us more time as a committee to get through the articles this year. We discussed briefly updating the award rating form. 


In terms of the February 1 lecture, we made arrangements to work with SAA on making sure Zoom works for us and for all attending. 


 We agreed to have a separate meeting devoted to survey results, coming up in place of our February meeting. Susan noted that the response rate mirrored that of many organizations, in achieving (only) an 8 percent response. The results though will be particularly helpful in future years and certainly so if we must look to our continuation as a separate section or one joined with another section.
