Congratulations to the Chicago Area Archivists 2017 Member of the Year Award winners Amy Belotti and Sarah Yarrito!
Sarah and Amy served as Co-Chairs to the 2016 Chicago Open Archives event. COA would not have been all that it was without their dedication and commitment. Both were very new members of CAA but answered the call for leadership for COA quickly and without hesitation. They worked tirelessly to keep the group and the event on schedule and ensured its success.
The winners were announced at last Thursday's members meeting and each received a certificate and a CAA Member of the Year tote bag. This was the first year this award was presented and we look forward to continuing to recognize the important work of our members in the years to come. Look out for the 2018 nomination announcement later in the year, and check out the Awards page for nomination guidelines for both the Member of the Year Award and the Janet Olson Award.
Congrats and thank you, Amy and Sarah!
