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 election will be conducted by electronic ballot, and the Annual Meeting will take place virtually (more details forthcoming).

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.

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.

We welcome nominations for the following positions:

  • President - the leader of the organization, helps to organize events and initiatives, sets the agenda for the Board, serves as the public face of the organization, and keeps all actions in accordance with the organization's bylaws.
  • Vice President - support to the President. Also oversees the inaugural "Nominations Committee" to recruit and nominate potential future Board members and ART Awards winners.
  • Director of Membership - maintains all aspects of membership, manages the internal database, and attends ART events to bring in members. Also responsible for building up membership through analysis and recruitment.
  • Director of Advocacy - responsible for serving as a unifying voice for the organization on issues that impact archives and archivists, supporting equality and diversity within the profession, and providing resources.
  • Director of Outreach - provides awareness and develops resources on ART members and archives to the community and those outside of the profession. Organizes the Archives Education Institute for Archives Week. Starting next year, they will be the coordinator of the Mentorship programs!
  • Director of Communications - responsible for sharing and creating content as well as engaging with followers across social media. 
  • Director of Publications - responsible for A.R.T's publication Metropolitan Archivist and programming associated with it.
  • Secretary - responsible for managing the website, meeting notes and supporting A.R.T.'s programming (which can include web design, graphic design, AV editing, copy editing, etc.).

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.
