The ArchivesSpace Governance Board is seeking nominations to fill up to 4 vacancies on the ArchivesSpace User Advisory Council (UAC).
Nominees should be presently employed at an ArchivesSpace member institution in the Large, Medium, or Very Small levels (please refer to the categorized member list at: <http://www.archivesspace.org/members> http://archivesspace.org/community/whos-using-archivesspace/).
Nominations may be made only by ArchivesSpace Member Representatives. All other staff of ArchivesSpace member organizations may submit nominations through their Member Representative. Member Representatives are encouraged to nominate persons from their institution or from other institutions who are experienced with some of the activities projected for UAC and who are capable of participating on a regular basis throughout their term of service. Self-nominations are also welcome.
Nominations must be received by 9:00 p.m. EDT Friday, April 28. The Nominations Committee will review all nominations and recommend appointments to the Governance Board for approval.
UAC (http://archivesspace.org/governance-board-and-councils/#UAC) 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:
* soliciting, suggesting, and gathering requirements for enhancements to the ArchivesSpace application;
* developing functional specifications for reports with the application;
* reviewing enhancements and priorities, and testing in collaboration with the Technical Advisory Council;
* maintaining and updating user documentation, as needed, of the ArchivesSpace application.
Sub-teams 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 a candidate for the ArchivesSpace User Advisory Council, please identify the person and her/his organization in the form below, indicate the areas of activity to which the nominee is prepared to contribute. Again, self-nominations are also welcome. Return the completed form via email to ArchivesSpace Program Manager, Christine Di Bella (christine.dibella at lyrasis.org), who will collect nominations on behalf of the ArchivesSpace Nominating Committee. All nominations must be submitted by 9:00 p.m. EDT Friday, April 28.
The anticipated time commitment for each appointee is expected to be two hours per week on average.
The term of service will be July 1, 2017-June 30, 2019. Each new appointee will be eligible to have her/his appointment renewed for an additional two-year term, i.e., July 1, 2019-June 30, 2021.
