It's been a great year! SAASC has participated in 13 events: including 3 in-person tours, and 5 virtual events which we hosted. We learned about cultural competency in the archives, the benefits of SAA membership & ACA certification, oral history, and how to attack the eport. We've been graced by distinguished speakers such as Helen Wong Smith, Rebecca Hankins, Sammie L. Morris, Brenda Gunn, Lauren Kata, and past SAASC Chair, Catherine Folnovic.
We would like to extend a huge thank you to all of you who participated in SAASC over the past year. If you attended our events, participated on a team, or even expressed an interest in our group, we are grateful and hope that you will become more involved in the future.
Thank you also to the iSchool faculty and staff, especially our SAASC Faculty Advisor, Lori Lindberg! We rely on your support!
A very special THANK YOU to our executive officers and teams. Without you, none of this would be possible.
Kudos and thanks to Tiana Trutna, who has served as SAASC Vice Chair and the Events Team Leader for two terms!
Thank you to Amanda Mellinger, who is graduating this semester, served on the Web Team from 2015-2016 and was elected as Secretary and Web Team Leader for 2016-2017. Amanda, you rock for getting SAASC established on ScholarWorks and YouTube.
Thank you Catherine Folnovic who graduated in December 2016, but stayed on until the last minute to train our new Archeota Team. She also came back to share her experience in a presentation about the eport!
Way to go Melissa Rupp! Melissa is graduating this semester and has served on the Web Team for two years!!! Melissa, we appreciate your always interesting and informative Facebook posts.
This year we have also welcomed newcomers who are putting in their time and showing their true dedication. Kimberlee Frederick trained as Archeota's Managing Editor in the Fall with Catherine and officially took over the position in the Spring.
Jody Perlmutter took over the reigns of Twitter and did a great job with October's SAA #AskAnArchivist event. Thanks, Jody!
Thank you to Sarah Edwards Obenauf who helped Amanda launch the ScholarWorks page!
And last, but certainly not least... we wish the best of luck to our incoming officers.
