As most of you know, some familiar names are working to form a new SAA roundtable to support the needs and interests of new archivists. Right now they are looking for comments on their draft proposal document and soon they will be asking people to email in “signatures” of support. If you’re interested in supporting this worthwhile effort, head over to the Planning a new SAA roundtable for new archivists blog and take a look at the draft proposal. They will also need virtual signatures from 50 SAA members endorsing the proposal. I don’t think there will be any trouble getting those, but be sure to look for the announcement over on their blog to see when it’s time to email those in.
