The Archivists Round Table of Metropolitan New York, Inc. (A.R.T.) is formally accepting nominations for the A.R.T. Board for the 2022 election year. Terms shall commence at the conclusion of the A.R.T. Annual Meeting, to be held on Tuesday, 26 July 2022, with the announcement of the election results.

The deadline for nomination submissions is Friday, 15 July 2022.
All current A.R.T. members are eligible for nomination. Nominations from colleagues and self-nominations are both welcome and encouraged.

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.
We welcome nominations for the following positions:
Positions are two-year terms, with the exception of the President and Director of Advocacy, which are both one-year interim terms.
Nominations can be submitted via this form.
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 headshot for the electronic ballot.
Please direct any questions to Nicholas Martin, at email@example.com.
Thank you for your generous participation and good luck to all the nominees!
