During CAA’s Steering Committee election, we will share comments from current Steering Committee members about their work with CAA. Today we hear from Nathalie Wheaton. Nathalie was elected to a 2018-2019 term and currently serves on the Steering Committee as the Special Events Committee Liaison.

After serving on the Chicago local arrangements committee for last year’s Midwest Archives Conference Annual Meeting, I welcomed the opportunity to keep that camaraderie going by serving on CAA’s Steering Committee. Serving on the Steering Committee has been especially rewarding for me as a lone arranger because I have enjoyed being part of a team of archivists making important decisions and plans. Whether you join the Steering Committee with years of archives or CAA experience, or you are just getting your feet wet, there is room at the table for a variety of perspectives and viewpoints and ideas.

The deadline to submit your Statement is Friday, March 1.

Service on the Steering Committee is open to all CAA members in good standing.To volunteer, submit a brief (1-2 paragraphs) Statement of Interest outlining your background and motivation for serving on the Steering Committee to Please include your full name, title, place of work (if applicable), and preferred contact phone and email address.

Statements of interest will be distributed to CAA members prior to the Members Meeting on March 13 and candidates will also have an opportunity to introduce themselves in person at the meeting. Candidates for the 2019-21 term will be elected by a vote of CAA members cast electronically after March 13.
