2017 Section Election - Call for Nominees

For anyone interested in protecting archives and cultural heritage objects from the threats of crimes, the Security Section is seeking nominations for a new member to join the leadership. We are seeking candidates for the position of Chair-elect. This is a three-year term (August 2017 to August 2020) - year one as Chair-elect, year two as Chair, and year three as immediate past Chair. We encourage candidates from any size or type of archives or cultural heritage institution and even beyond the archives world to be a candidate for this position. Candidates must be current members of SAA. Nominations can be sent to any current member of the leadership team and are due by June 1.
In the past, we have sought nominations for a Secretary (one-year term) and a Junior Co-chair (two-year term). This year, we are proposing a by-laws change, which will be on the ballot for the entire Security Section membership to vote on. This change will do away with the title of Secretary while maintaining a strong, three-person leadership team.
In addition to duties related to the annual meeting and the operations of the section, the new Chair-elect will contribute to Archives Security, the blog of the Security Section. In 2016-17, we established this venue as a way to explore issues related to crimes against objects of enduring cultural value and we will continue to expand the content on this blog in 2017-18.
If you have any questions about the Security Section or are interested in nominating yourself or another person to be on the ballot, please send an e-mail to the members of the leadership team.
Bryan Whitledge, Co-Chair (whitl1br@cmich.edu)
Miranda Mims, Co-Chair (mirandatmims@gmail.com)
Jaime Burton, Secretary (jmburton1@uky.edu)
