It is that time of year again and the Association needs your help. This is the perfect time to give a little bit of your time back to SCAA and your fellow archivists, as well as gain valuable service experience for your vita. SCAA relies on volunteers to arrange for quality professional development opportunities at an affordable price, to provide networking opportunities, to make available opportunities for sharing expertise and information via our blog (a publishing opportunity as well) and listserv, and to maintain a professional presence in the state.
