Call for Nominations: SNAP Section Steering Committee

The Students and New Archives Professionals (SNAP) Section is seeking nominations for a Vice Chair/Chair-Elect, Secretary, and three (3) Steering Committee Members. 
Serving in a leadership role on the Roundtable is a wonderful way to become more involved with SNAP and SAA and get to know other archivists. Our proposed SNAP bylaws require, to ensure adequate student representation in SNAP leadership, that at least two candidates on the slate must be students at the time of the election.
In order to hold a position as an officer and/or member of the Steering Committee, you must be both a member of SAA and the SNAP Section. The term for each office is one year, beginning at the close of the SAA annual meeting in 2017 and ending at the close of the SAA annual meeting in 2018.
All nominations are due by 11:59 PM EDT on Wednesday, May 24, 2017.
If you are interested in nominating yourself or someone else, please fill out this form:


Vice Chair/Chair-Elect (1 position: 1 year term, followed by 1 year as chair):
The vice chair/chair-elect will assist the chair in the operation of the section, serve as acting chair in the absence of the chair, and participate as a member of the steering committee. The chair directs and reports the activities of the section, organizes and runs the annual meeting, leads the steering committee, and handles administrative duties, including, but not limited to submitting the section's annual report and serving as the section’s liaison to SAA and Council.  The chair, in consultation with the other members of the steering committee, may solicit and appoint section volunteers to serve as the web coordinator, social media coordinator, student chapter coordinator and/or newsletter and blog coordinator and editor. 
Secretary (1 position: 1 year term):
The secretary will serve as the official record keeper of the section and be responsible for compiling and sharing minutes from steering committee and annual meetings.
