    Activity: MembershipMembership of committee

    Description

    Serve as the go-between for the Society of American Archivists -- the US's oldest and largest professional organization for archivists -- and the National Coalition for History -- a non-profit educational organization providing leadership in history related advocacy. Serve as SAA's vote on the NCH Policy Board and bring issues that need further discussion to SAA's Executive Committee, Council, and Committee on Public Policy. Worked with the National Humanities Alliance to revise the FY 2022 ask for National Archives and Records Administration funding up by 15% from about $365 million to $422 million. This ask was put forward to the Congress during the FY 2022 appropriations process, but has yet to be enacted. Also educated members of the humanities advocacy field about the importance of archives and how to sell archives as an essential part of humanities and history endeavors.
