To the members of the ArchivesSpace community:

I am pleased to announce the results of the elections we recently conducted
to fill vacancies on the ArchivesSpace Governance Board.

·         *Audra Eagle Yun*, Head of Special Collections & Archives and
University Archivist, at the University of California, Irvine Libraries,
has been elected to serve as the representative for Very Large member

·         *Alston Cobourn*, Digital Scholarship Librarian, at Washington
and Lee University, has been elected to serve as the representative for
Small member institutions

Audra and Alston will serve two-year terms, effective as of today, July 1,
and running through June 30, 2018. We extend our renewed thanks to outgoing
representatives Megan Sniffin-Marinoff (Harvard University) and Lynda
Kachurek (University of Richmond). We also remain grateful to Cynthia
Gehring and Heather Heckman for their candidacies and to the several other
members who participated in the nomination process.

The leadership needs of our community-based, community-driven organization
are ongoing, and so the contributions of all members, including those of
you who voted as voting representatives for your member institutions,
continue to be greatly valued.

As our board chair Carol Mandel noted in her recent report, *Gregor
Trinkhaus-Randall *has been appointed as the new LYRASIS board liaison to
the ArchivesSpace Governance Board, succeeding Jay Schafer in that role.
Gregor is currently the vice chair of the LYRASIS board and a former SAA

The board has also recently approved the appointments of two new members to
the Users Advisory Council representing Small member institutions: *Suzanne
Stasiulatis* (Pennsylvania State Archives) and *Jamie Weeks* (Weber State
University). The board is in the process of filling the vacancy on UAC
created by the election Alston Cobourn to the Governance Board.

Best wishes to all as we welcome our representatives to their new roles and
look ahead to coming year.

Respectfully submitted,

Christian Dupont
