[Distributing for the Chair of the ArchivesSpace Nominations Committee<https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/wiki/pages/createpage.action?spaceKey=ABT&title=Dristributed+from+Chair+of+the+Nominations+Committee+to+ArchivesSpace+Member+representatives>]

The ArchivesSpace Governance Board is seeking nominations to fill a vacancy on the ArchivesSpace User Advisory Council (UAC).

Nominees should be presently employed at an ArchivesSpace member institution in the "Small" category (please refer to the categorized member list at: http://www.archivesspace.org/members<http://www.archivesspace.org/members>). Nominees should be experienced with some of the activities projected for UAC and be capable of participating on a regular basis throughout the term of service of July 1, 2016-June 30, 2018. The appointee will be eligible to have her/his appointment renewed for an additional two-year term, i.e., July 1, 2018-June 30, 2020. Appointees are expected to devote an average of two hours per week to UAC activities.

Only ArchivesSpace members representatives may submit a nomination.  All other staff of ArchivesSpace member organizations may submit nominations through their Member Representative.  All Member Representatives are strongly encouraged to consult with all interested colleagues within their organization. Self-nominations are also welcome if you represent a Small member institution.

Nominations must be received by 9:00 p.m. EDT Friday, April 29, 2016. They may be sent to ArchivesSpace Program Manager Bradley Westbrook (brad.westbrook at lyrasis.org<http://lyrasis.org/>), who will collect nominations on behalf of the Nominations Committee. The Nominations Committee will review all nominations and recommend an appointment for approval by the Governance Board.

UAC (http://www.archivesspace.org/usersadvisory) is a critical part of the ArchivesSpace community, serving as a communication conduit between ArchivesSpace governance groups and ArchivesSpace users. It is also the group that implements and contributes to ArchivesSpace user services. Some of the activities UAC is currently engaged in are:

*         liaising with national and regional archives organizations;

*         soliciting, suggesting, gathering requirements for, and prioritizing enhancements to the ArchivesSpace application;

*         maintaining and updating user documentation, as needed, of the ArchivesSpace application;

*         developing and providing training to users; and

*         advising the Governance Board and LYRASIS on the design and delivery of user services, including but not limited to help desk support, training, and presentation of documentation.

Sub-groups will be established within UAC to address the areas identified above, as well as other activities identified subsequently. Nominees will be appointed to UAC according to their ability to participate in and lead some of the activities mentioned above.

To nominate someone for the ArchivesSpace User Advisory Council, please identify the person and her/his organization in the form below, indicating the areas of activity to which the nominee is prepared to contribute. Return the completed form to ArchivesSpace Program Manager Bradley Westbrook (brad.westbrook at lyrasis.org<http://lyrasis.org/>), who will collect nominations on behalf of the Nominations Committee. Again, self-nominations are encouraged, and all nominations must be received 9:00 EDT Friday, April 29.

Thank you for your participation in this important process, which is an essential part of our identity and operations as a community-based software organization.
