From June 12-24, 2018, ART will hold online elections for 6 different Board positions:
Director of Outreach
Director of Membership
Director of Communications
Director of Publications (new and vacant)
The term of each position is two years, a length of time which allows each member to contribute their unique expertise to the archival community within these collaborative roles. The only exception is Vice President/President-Elect; there is a third year of service as Past-President and as a non-voting member of the Board.

Since 1979, the Archivists Round Table has supported the efforts of professionals and institutions to promote and preserve archives and records management in the New York Metropolitan area. Its archives are a document to that history and consist of a growing repository of correspondence, professional development, events, workshops, advocacy, and overall history of New York archives and individuals.
Located in the archives at the New York Philharmonic, my exploration of ART’s archives began by creating an inventory of its materials starting with box 1, folder 1. As my time with the materials grew, so did my knowledge of its dynamic history and the many people that have contributed to its mission. ART’s archives are a testament to New York and its history, as well as the institutions that have preserved its communities and cultures.
