New Archivist Needed!
The Archivist is appointed by the Archives Committee, and is a person with specialized skills and / or training. Their term of service is open ended, but must be reaffirmed every two years at the Election Assembly. This individual is responsible for both physical and intellectual integrity of the collection. It is important that they understand they must protect the anonymity of members whose names are included in the collected documents.
Reporting regularly, the Archivist keeps the Archives Committee informed about new material received, and gives status updates about ongoing projects (like the digitizing of Area 78 Archival materials).
Organized, neat and methodical.
Should have a reasonable length of sobriety, in order to have an understanding of the AA Steps and Traditions.
Trained, experienced, or educated in archival work, or willing to learn from manuals, relevant materials, and/or courses offered in their immediate area.
Should reside close enough to the Archives viewing and storage area so ongoing projects can be sustained in a timely fashion.
Computer skills, including some database management knowledge, or a willingness to learn same.
Please forward applications to the Area 78 Committee,
