2011 NAGARA/CoSA Annual Meeting Update 3

I seem to have gotten behind on posting annual meeting updates. Sorry about that! Now that I’m home and have a little more time I’ll work my way through the last few. Here’s what I already had prepared for Friday. It doesn’t cover the whole day, but it should tide you over until I get a chance to post again.

After a good night’s sleep and some much needed caffeine, I’m rejuvenated and ready to give you all an update of [Friday’s] events (although there are no photos this time). 

We started our day bright and early with the CoSA Business Meeting. The meeting began with an informative update about NHPRC and SNAP Grants from Kathleen Williams and Dan Stokes. Then we moved right along with Barbara Teague’s State of the Association remarks. CoSA’s been very busy since last year’s annual meeting, and we expect to be very busy again this year. 

After listening to Terry Ketelsen’s treasurer’s Report, it sounds like CoSA is financially sound. 

The next agenda item was the Board of Directors election. We have all really enjoyed working with Barbara Teague during her stint as President, and like most of our board members, she will be continuing on with us with committee work. Julia Young, who served as our Vice President this past year, has been elected to now serve as our President and Jim Corridan was elected Vice President/President-elect. Jim had also been serving as our Parliamentarian, but upon accepting the vice presidentship, he had to pass the baton to Dave Joens. So even though Dave Joens will be leaving the Board, he has agreed to serve as our new parliamentarian in addition to continuing his work with several projects and initiatives. And Terry Ketelsen is continuing on as our treasurer. We are also happy to welcome two new members to the Board, Chris Ward from New York and Susan Lugo from the Virgin Islands. We look forward to working with them on current and new projects. 

We then discussed future annual meetings. In 2012 we’ll be meeting jointly again with NAGARA in Santa Fe, NM. In 2013 we are meeting jointly with SAA in New Orleans, LA. Then it’s back to DC in 2014 to meet jointly with both SAA and NAGARA. 

Barbara then briefly mentioned again that CoSA will be presenting the Kathleen D. Roe Advocacy for Archives Award to NASS at their meeting in February before moving on to the funnest part of the meeting – recognition of service to CoSA. Barbara read and presented a resolution to Dave Joens. Then Julia read and presented a resolution to Barbara, after which we “graduated” Barbara from the CoSA board. Past presidents Kathleen Roe, Karl Niederer, David Haury, and Pat Michaelis invested Barbara with a cap, gown, and shield/hood before the audience all tossed mortar boards into the air. 

After the CoSA Business Meeting we had to hustle over to the next room for the Measuring Electronic Records incubator session, led by Vicki Walch. The session went really well and we gathered everyone’s thoughts on how to best measure electronic records and we’ll use the information when preparing the next survey.
