The SAA Women's Collections Section is currently seeking nominees for the roles of Vice Co-Chair/Co-Chair Elect!


For the first year of the two-year term, these two elected officers will hold the positions of Vice Co-Chairs. The second year in office, the elected officers will hold the positions of Co-Chairs. Newly elected officers will assume office immediately following the conclusion of the Annual Meeting in August. New officers do not have to attend the annual meeting.


The role of the Vice Co-Chair is to act as an officer of the section, work with the Co-Chairs to develop projects and opportunities to connect section members, manage the section's annual meeting and elections, and above all, work with the section's membership to increase visibility of women's collections in archives, libraries, and museums. The time commitment for this role averages about 1-3 hours each month. For more information, see the section by-laws.
