Dear ArchivesSpace members, colleagues, and friends,

I am very pleased to announce the results of this year's election for members to the ArchivesSpace Governance Board.  They are:

*          Christian Dupont, Burns Librarian and Associate University Librarian for Special Collections, Boston College, Large membership level, first two-year term ending June 2017

*          Gerald (Jay) Gaidmore, Marian Y. Alan McLeod Director of the Special Collections Research Center, College of William & Mary, Medium membership level, second two-year term ending June 2017

*          Thomas Adams, Systems & Digital Project Developer, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, Very Small membership level, first two-year term ending June 2017

Voting for the Middle membership level ended in a tie, which was resolved Tuesday, Aug. 4, with a coin toss between the two candidates.

I am also happy to announce that Robert Miller, CEO of LYRASIS, is succeeding Kate Nevins as the voting representative of LYRASIS and that Jay Schafer, Director of Libraries University of Massachusetts -Amherst, is succeeding Kathy Ray as the ex officio representative of the LYRASIS board.

The ArchivesSpace program and community are fortunate that the enthusiastic and capable people that departed the board at the end of this past year-Kate Nevins, Kathy Ray, Tim Pyatt, and Chris Ervin-are being succeeded by equally enthusiastic and capable people.

The Governance Board roster, updated for 2015/16, is posted at https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/wiki/display/ABT/Current+Roster+of+Members and http://archivesspace.org/board.

The next Governance Board meeting is scheduled for Saturday morning, August 22, in Cleveland, Ohio.  While Governance Board meetings are not open to the membership, Board members will be present and available for question and conversation at the ArchivesSpace member meeting that afternoon at the Cleveland Public Library.

Looking forward to seeing many of you at the members meeting!


Brad W.
