We have four offices to fill from our slate of candidates. Each candidate has provided a brief bio, statement, and responded to a specific question related to the office for which they are running. Below is a brief description of each position on the ballot this year.
Roles & Responsibilities:
The elected candidate serves the first year as the Vice-president and as the program chair for the Society's annual general meeting, and assists or substitutes as the President, as needed. The Vice-president is President-elect, and automatically becomes President on the expiration of the President's term. This is a three-year commitment.
The Treasurer is responsible for all financial transactions of SCA, for keeping an accurate record of those transactions, and reporting to the Board of Directors and the general membership on the financial condition of the organization. The work of collecting, disbursing, and accounting for funds may be delegated by the Treasurer; however, the Treasurer is responsible for ensuring that the delegated activities are properly carried out and the reports are accurate. This is a two-year commitment.
The Director-at-Large attends quarterly meetings of the Board of Directors, serves as a liaison to the WAI Joint Management Committee, and actively participates in the work of the Society and its committees. Additional duties and responsibilities may be assigned by the President. This is a two-year commitment.
The Nominating Committee solicits candidates for the SCA Board of Directors and prepares a slate of candidates for offices falling vacant within a given year. The three-member committee is chaired by the Immediate Past President. This is a two-year commitment.

In David Keller's article, "Tom Connors - An Appreciation," published in the Winter 2024 SCA Newsletter, there was an error on page 6. Michelle Dolbec is the archivist who worked for Hydro Quebec and then with the International Monetary Fund in Washington, DC, not Tom Connors.
Please see http://www.calarchivists.org/Publications/SCANewsletter for the corrected version of this article.
It is now online at http://www.calarchivists.org/Publications/SCANewsletter.
