The SAA 2017 Candidate Interviews

This morning we’ll continue the SNAP Blog’s tradition of featuring each of the candidates for SAA elected positions and their responses to SNAP-specific questions. While the questions remain fairly similar year to year, there’s no doubt that candidate responses are tinged with their take on present circumstances both in the archival profession and greater world.

We’ll be posting interviews between February 13th and March 13th to help you get to know the candidates before the SAA Election from March 13th to March 31st. Candidates were all emailed the questions on the same day and we’ll be posting their responses in the order that we received them.

I’m reminded daily that voting is a incredible privilege and responsibility. You can find general election information here. And check out SNAP’s previous coverage of the SAA election process. Be sure to make your voice heard this SAA election season!
