Meet the 2024 Candidates:

Vice Chair/Chair Elect

Vice Chair candidate Quirion

Alison Quirion
Archivist, Santa Monica Studio

Bio: After spending 20 years as a marketer in the entertainment industry, I decided to pursue my interest in asset management, archives, and information organization. In Spring 2021, I received my MLIS degree from San José State University, and in November 2021, I began working as the Archivist for Santa Monica Studio, an internal development team owned by Sony Interactive Entertainment, and best known for their PlayStation franchise, God of War. I earned a Digital Archives Specialist (DAS) certificate from SAA in September 2022. I’m based in Long Beach, California. I got involved with the Solo Archivists section in 2023 and am currently one of the Regional Representatives.

Candidate Statement: Over the past year, my experience with the Solo Archivists section has been eye-opening. The section is filled with amazing solo archivists willing to offer their suggestions and advice to other members. Many of us feel overloaded with work and without internal peers to lean on, sometimes we feel uncertain about our work. The discussions, presentations, and initiatives of the Solo Archivists section are invaluable to me and my self-confidence as an early career archivist. As Vice Chair/Chair Elect, I will continue the work I initiated with the Buddy List and develop more ways for our members to connect to resources and to each other. As solo archivists, I appreciate that we all have limited time, and I want to make sure that the time that you give to SAA and the Solo Archivists section is worthwhile.
