Call for Steering Committee Member Candidates and Elections

The Performing Arts Section (PAS) is inviting nominations for both the Co-Chair and three Steering Committee Member positions.

Serving in a leadership role on the Section is a wonderful way to become more involved with PAS and SAA and get to know other archivists.

Members of SAA and PAS are encouraged to apply for a position as an officer or member of the Steering Committee. Membership in both SAA and PAS is a condition of the nomination. The term for each office is two years, beginning in September 2023.

If you wish to nominate yourself or someone else, please complete this form [link to Google form]. All nominations are due by 11:59 PM PST on May 27, 2023. If you are nominated by someone else, you will have an opportunity before the ballot goes live to write your own candidate statement. You will need to resubmit the form for each nomination.

Candidates may only run for one position. If you are nominated for multiple positions, you must choose which position you'd like to run for.


PAS will conduct its annual elections via an online ballot system provided by the SAA staff. Online ballots will open on June 26, 2023, and shall remain open for three weeks, closing on July 17, 2023.  Results will be announced on the PAS listserv.


Co-Chairs (two positions: two-year term): The co-chairs will assist each other in the operation of the section and participate as a member of the steering committee. The co-chairs write reports for SAA, the welcome letter for Performance!, the section blog, plan the annual section meeting, and delegate responsibilities for updating and maintaining the section’s website, and other special projects that may arise.

Steering Committee Member (three, two-year term positions): Members of the Steering Committee shall serve in an advisory capacity to the co-chairs and may be assigned specific responsibilities by the chairs. Committee members establish projects for the year, help plan the annual meeting of the section, and endorse SAA program sessions presented to the section. A member of the Steering Committee shall serve as secretary at the annual section meeting and take minutes, which will be submitted to the co-chairs.
