See what current and former ART Board Members say about volunteering for ART Board service:

“New York boasts the most varied archival community in the world – government, finance, labor, museums, performing arts, higher education, social services, fashion, libraries, manufacturing, sports, advertising, newspapers, and on and on. All of us, all of our collections are connected because we work within this remarkable City. Being an officer of the Archivists Round Table expanded my understanding of this dedicated, professional community unlike anything I did before or since.  I learned who was who, and how our collections, even tangentially related to one another. I worked with a great team of officers who wanted to get things done, support each other, and bring archives more to the forefront of our society where they belong. All of this experience I brought “home” to the Philharmonic which made my work within the organization richer, more robust and even more respected. Although not true, I seemed to know everybody, dead or alive. At the first Archives Week, while talking with an executive from the New York Stock Exchange about Philharmonic Board members who he knew had been involved with the Exchange, he paid me… all of us, a great compliment, he said “I’ve never met a boring archivist.”  Make something happen.  Run for office. You will always be glad that you did.”

"Being an ART Board Member has been very enriching. It has not only given me the opportunity to meet and work with people who have similar interests, but also interact with people who have different perspectives and backgrounds. There are opportunities to select committees and activities that you want to dedicate your time to, allowing you to develop new skills and utilize other talents you have – opportunities for development you may not have at your job."


Melissa Bowling

Secretary, Archivists Round Table of Metropolitan New York, Inc. (ART) (2012-2014)


“As a new archivist, serving on the ART Board of Directors, first as Membership Coordinator and then as Education Director, has been an extremely broadening and rewarding experience. It provided me with valuable leadership and organizational experience and most importantly introduced me to an incredible network of local archivists and information professionals who have become valued colleagues and friends.”
