    The Archivists Round Table of Metropolitan New York, Inc. (A.R.T.) is formally accepting nominations for the A.R.T. Board for the 2021 election year. Terms shall commence at the conclusion of the A.R.T. Annual Meeting, to be held on Tuesday, 29 June 2021, with the announcement of the election results. The election will be conducted by electronic ballot and the Annual Meeting will take place online (more details forthcoming).

    The deadline for nomination submissions is Thursday, 17 June 2021.

    All current A.R.T. members are eligible for nomination. Nominations from colleagues and self-nominations are both welcome. We invite members to submit nominations via the Nomination Form.

    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.

    This year, the following positions are up for election:

    • Vice President/President-Elect
    • Director of the Education Committee
    • Director of the Advocacy Committee
    • Director of the Programming Committee
    • Treasurer

    Committee descriptions can be found here.

    Positions are two-year terms, with the exception of the Vice President, which is a one-year term, after which the Vice President becomes President without an election, then 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 headshot for the electronic ballot, all due by Monday 21 June 2021, 6pm EDT.

    The board of the Archivists Round Table of Metropolitan New York (ART) has released a statement condemning the attack on the United States Capitol by those seeking to block the certification of electors in the recent presidential election and the violence that resulted in five deaths.

    We are well aware that the events that unfolded on January 6th are not without precedent; archives of the United States bear witness to many instances of violence perpetrated by those with white supremacist views seeking to wield political power. As an organization representing a diversity of cultural and governmental institutions, collections, and archivists in the New York metropolitan area, ART affirms our commitment to upholding democratic values towards the promise of a more just and free society.

    Please read the full statement on our Advocacy page: ART Statement on January 6th Attack on the Capitol
