The SCAA Board met last week on May 13, 2020. Because of the ongoing pandemic the Board decided to cancel the Summer Social this year. It encourages members to continue to donate to the Hart Endowment.
The Board is investigating the possibility of holding the Fall Annual Meeting online. The Board expects to make a decision in July on whether to hold the meeting online.
The Heritage Emergency National Task Force has launched its COVID-19 Resource Hub (https://culturalrescue.si.edu/hentf/major-disasters/current-disasters/). This web portal leads to an array of resources that can help you respond to and recover from the pandemic.
The webinar Deriving Value from Collections in the Time of Corona (COVID-19) is now available on-demand via YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vhK2ww1_ZR8&feature=youtu.be), and resides on the Committee of Public Awareness' Resources & Toolkits page (www2.archivists.org/advocacy/publicawareness/ ...).
The SCAA Board met via email last Friday April 10 to consider a request from the Ad-Hoc Working Group on Archivist Salary Transparency to sign SCAA on to a collaborative open letter to SAA Council on archivist salary transparency. The Board agreed to do so.
The letter can be found at https://bit.ly/3esJc0a.
