Archival Educators Roundtable Meeting
Tuesday, August 26, 2008, 5:30-7:30 pm
Annual Business Meeting for the Archival Educators Roundtable. Formal Business: Election of Roundtable Chair/Vice Chair. Volunteers Requested.
Please send requests for agenda items to the current Chair, Deb Torres, email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Discussion: Proposal to form Task Force to study SAA Accreditation of Archival Education Programs. See message below:
A small group of SAA members has put together an item for consideration by SAA Council requesting appointment of a task force to explore the feasibility of accreditation of graduate archival education programs by SAA. While this issue has, of course, been explored in the past, it appears to have been dormant for awhile, and we think it's an opportune time to reopen the discussion.
We've posted a draft of our submission online to http://saacouncilsubmissions.blogspot.com and would welcome feedback, either posted to the web page or sent directly to me at email@example.com. (We've submitted notice of our intent to SAA for consideration at Council's August meeting, but the deadline for the final submission is August 4.) People are also very welcome to contact me if they have questions, or would like to sign on in support.
Thanks for your help, Christine
