Cathy Popovitch of the Illinois State Archives was recently awarded a Victoria Irons Walch Emerging Leader Award. Popovitch received the award at this year’s CoSA/SAA/NAGARA joint meeting in Washington D.C.

The purpose of the award is to “encourage the development of an emerging leader in state and territorial archives.” As part of the award, recipients receive a travel stipend to attend the annual CoSA meeting. Eligible nominees are individuals who have worked in a state or territorial archives less than five (5) years and have never attended a CoSA Annual Meeting.

Congratulations to Charla, Hathaway, and Cathy!
