Upcoming -- July 2017 Ballot Referendum: Change to Standing Rules (section bylaws)

BACKGROUND:  The Archival History Section should have continuous representation on the Advisory Board of Information and Culture: A Journal of History, a major journal representing authors in the field of archival history. From about 2010 to 2014, the Archival History Roundtable had representation on the board of Information and Culture: A Journal of History, but representation lapsed until October 2016, when a vote of the steering committee re-initiated representation on the board.
