A Year in Review, 2016

Posted: December 12, 2016 by saacua in News

As 2016 swiftly comes to a close, we want to take a moment to take a look at all SAA@CUA has been able to accomplish this year. The beginning of 2016 under Jenna Tenaglio’s leadership as president saw several developments, including many vibrant blog posts published by current CUA LIS students. In April of 2016 at the SAA@CUA Semesterly Meeting, Rebecca Katz, Administrator of the District of Columbia Office of Public Records, presented a “Landing Your Dream Job” lecture and Dr. Zhang lead an information session on the Certified Archivist Examination.

By September of 2016 – following the graduation of several officers – Katherine Santa Ana was elected president, with Rebecca McCormick as vice president, Michelle King as treasurer, and Victoria Pohlen as secretary. Fall of 2016 was a busy one for SAA@CUA, as members hosted a table at 2016 Archives Fair at the National Museum of American History in early October, followed by a tour of Manuscripts Division of Library of Congress later that same month. In November, SAA@CUA member Chris Needham attended MARAC Fall conference at Annapolis. Finally, earlier this month, Katherine Santa Ana made written contributions to the AGLISS Spring newsletter for distribution about CUA LIS students.

With all these experiences behind us, we are looking forward to Spring 2017 and are open to new ideas! Please feel free to contact SAA@CUA is you have an archives related event you’d like to participate in or want to share any of your archives experiences here on our blog. We’d love to hear from you. See you all next year!
