    In response to feedback from the Membership, SCA will be testing out a blog format for news, announcements and other information on our home page. At this point, new blog posts can only be added by SCA Board Members and Committee Chairs, but active members are welcome to leave comments. SCA welcomes all feedback about this new format and we look forward to hearing from you!

    On April 3, email invitations to vote on-line for the SCA elections were sent to SCA members.   You will have the opportunity to cast your ballot electronically until May 3, 2015. If you have not received your invitation to vote, please contact Peter Runge, Election Committee Chair. 

    Also, remember that there is a vote on a change to our Bylaws. California non-profits code no longer allows non-voting members on boards. The position of past-president on our board is non-voting and to retain this position the SCA Board is proposing that our Bylaws be changed to make the position a voting one. A "Yes" vote will keep the important position of past-president on our board.

    Thank you!

    SCA's Member Initiated Events helped support the following meetings. 

    On September 22 there was a Member-Initiated Event at UC Riverside's California Museum of Photography hosted by Leigh Gleason, of that institution. There were a total of twenty-three attendees, who came from Orange County, Los Angeles, and Palm Springs, besides the Riverside area. There was site tour of the museum, as well as a discussion of continuing this kind of gathering for archivists in the area.

    September 10 saw the Gold Country Archivists host a Society of American Archivists webinar at the Center for Sacramento History. The twenty-six attendees came from Sacramento County, Yolo County, Amador County, San Joaquin County, San Francisco County, and Mariposa County.The event included light refreshments, and a brown-bag lunch.

    Member Initiated Events provides support to bring California archivists together for networking, discussion forums, site visits, special speakers, and mini-conferences. If you are interested in support for your group, please contact Kate Tasker of the Membership Committeememberevents@calarchivists.org.
