As chair of the 2019/20 ArchivesSpace Nominating Committee, I seek your
nominations of candidates to stand for election for the ArchivesSpace
Governance Board representing the Large, Medium and Very Small membership
levels. Member engagement is critical to the success of ArchivesSpace, and
the Board relies upon your recommendations for strong candidates. You may
nominate individuals in your own membership level as well as membership
levels other than your own.

We are seeking one additional candidate for the Large level, two for the
Medium level, and one additional candidate for the Very Small level. (The
current incumbents at the Large (Gordon Daines) and Very Small (Nick
Zmijewski) membership levels are running for re-election as
representatives.) The terms for all successful candidates will be July 1,
2020-June 30, 2023. Each newly elected member representative will be
eligible to run for a second term, July 1, 2023-June 30, 2026.

Nominees must be currently employed by an ArchivesSpace member organization
in either the Large, Medium or Very Small member levels (see the member
lists at: http://archivesspace.org/community/whos-using-archivesspace/).
Nominees should have administrative and fiscal oversight experience,
characteristics typical of director or associate director level staff. The
Governance Board is charged with providing oversight for the ArchivesSpace
application and community, including fiscal oversight, the approval of
development priorities, and oversight of the Technical and User Advisory

To submit nominations, including self-nominations, please submit this form
at https://forms.gle/PTvzTXoMCkHQdNga8. Nominees who confirm their interest
in standing for election will be requested to supply a formal candidate
statement outlining their qualifications for serving on the ArchivesSpace
Governance Board (see:
http://archivesspace.org/about/governance-board-and-councils/). The
Nominating Committee will review all nominations and confirm a slate of
nominees with the current Governance Board. An election ballot will be
circulated to member institutions in mid-May.

*Nominations must be received by 9:00 p.m. EDT Friday, April 24th*. Please
contact Christine Di Bella, ArchivesSpace Program Manager, at
christine.dibella at lyrasis.org or any member of the Nominating Committee
with questions.

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