2017/2018 Business Archives Section: Vote for Standing Rules Revision

We are happy to announce a few changes regarding the roles of our Steering Committee Members.  First and probably most immediate is the new position of Education Chair.  This position is open for nominations now and here is the description of the role:

The Education Chair is responsible for the promotion of business archives to students, new professionals, and others interested in becoming a business archivist, and will act as liason to the Students and New Professionals Section. The Educational Chair will also lead educational efforts and opportunities of interest to the Section, including management of the BAS Mentorship program, and will solicit volunteer assistance with these programs as needed.

In addition, we are revising/adding to the role of the Past Chair and Member-At-Large:

The Immediate Past Chair will be responsible for maintaining the Business Archives Advocacy Toolkit and monitoring general advocacy efforts as related to business archivists, their repositories or their collections, with the assistance of the Member-At-Large.

Please read and review the proposed revision to the Business Archives Section Standing Rules before the election.  (You can find the current and previous versions of the BAS Standing Rules (previously Bylaws) under the Governance section.)
