During CAA’s Steering Committee election, we will share comments from current Steering Committee members about their work with CAA. Today we hear from Megan Keller Young. Megan was elected for a 2017-2019 term and currently serves on the Steering Committee as the Vice-Chair.

When I first moved to Chicago right after finishing library school, I wasn’t sure how to get my foot in the door. Luckily I managed to find the Chicago Area Archivists and have been gaining knowledge and experience ever since, whether through listserv posts, professional development events, or simply meeting people at the Holiday Party. Being around so many other passionate archivists convinced me to pitch in to help keep CAA going. After a few years on Outreach, I was elected to the Steering Committee, where I have been lucky to work on a variety of projects with my colleagues around the city. The time commitment is minimal (a few hours a month), especially compared to the opportunities CAA offers as a result of all of our hard work. I urge all CAA members to consider serving on the Steering Committee. Joining CAA is a great way to get your foot in the door, but by serving on Steering, you can help hold it open for others.

To volunteer, submit a brief (1-2 paragraphs) Statement of Interest outlining your background and motivation for serving on the Steering Committee toinfo@chicagoarchivists.orgPlease include your full name, title, place of work (if applicable), and preferred contact phone and email address.

The deadline to submit your Statement is Friday, March 1 at 5:00 pm.
