The Archivists Round Table of Metropolitan New York, Inc. (A.R.T.) is formally accepting nominations for the A.R.T. Board for the 2019 election year. Terms shall commence at the conclusion of the A.R.T. Annual Meeting, to be held on 27 June 2019, with the announcement of the election results. The meeting will take place at Metropolitan New York Library Council, 599 11th Avenue, 8th floor New York, NY 10036.
Deadline for nomination submissions is 13 June 2019, midnight EDT. Please submit your information via this form.
All current A.R.T. members are eligible for nomination. Nominations from colleagues and self-nominations are both welcomed.
Serving on the A.R.T. Board is a unique volunteer opportunity. As an A.R.T. Board member, you will gain skills and expertise beyond the scope of your past and present work commitments. Local leadership, project management, and networking are a few of the key benefits. Most importantly, you are serving as a representative for your colleagues and all A.R.T. membership.
Positions are two-year terms, with the following exception: the Vice President, which is a one-year term, from which the Vice President becomes President without an election, then s/he serves as Past-President for an additional year.
After the nomination period closes, each candidate confirming acceptance of the nomination will be required to provide a short biography (100 words or less), a candidate's statement, and a heads hot for the ballot, all due by 18 June 2019, midnight EDT.
