Chapter Message - Summer 2016
We had a great time at our final meeting on June 15, which featured Mark Santangelo, Chief Librarian and Archivist, National Library for the Study of George Washington, who spoke on "Then and Now, the Conservation of Records at George Washington's Mount Vernon." He is the Washington Library's first Chief Librarian and Archivist, and talked about the history of its founding, its collections, outreach and research programs, and the development of its archiving and records management policies and practices. We are so enthusiastic about its programs that chapter members may get a special tour, so stay tuned!
We also said a farewell to our former Vice-President James Willson-Quayle and a special farewell to George Darnell, who has served on the Board for over twenty years. He is moving away but will try to stay involved when he can. We were happy to give him some special parting gifts! We also will welcome new Board members Sabrina Lozano and Sukumar Iyer as Vice-Presidents.
During the summer, we will hold three planning meetings for our 2016-2017 season. If you have any suggestions for speakers or events, please contact our President (Mary Beth Weaver) or Education Director (Tim Shinkle).
We will continue to post job openings for records managers in the area and further afield. Please check them out!
We also wanted to mention that full-time grad students have been able to register for our programs under our Member rates. In particular, if you are an archives/records management, library, or information science grad student, or know someone who is, our programs can be a great introduction to the issues and trends in our profession. We always welcome area grad students and newcomers to records management to participate in our chapter's activities.
