    The Society of California Archivists depends on its members to help the organization function at its best. In advance of the SCA AGM 2024 on April 15th, members are invited to consider becoming a volunteer with any of our committees.

    Below is a list of committees that have announced vacancies for the coming year. You can learn more about these and all of our committees at our SCA Standing Committees page. You will find contacts listed at the bottom of each committee page.

    We sincerely thank all our 2023-2024 committee members for generously volunteering their time and skills. We could not do SCA’s work without you!

    The Strategic Planning Task Force invites you to participate in a survey on your experience with the Society of California Archivists. Your responses are important to us and will be used to guide  recommendations to the SCA Board for directing the resources and activities of SCA in the coming years. You do not need to be a current member to participate in this survey.

    Access the membership survey at this link: bit.ly/sca-survey-2024 

    The survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. All responses to this survey will be anonymous. Answers to some questions are required in order to complete the survey and are marked with a red asterisk (*). Some multiple-choice questions have an option to explain your answer more fully in writing, and we encourage you to do so when you feel you have more to share. There are two questions on demographics at the end of the survey, which are optional.

    The survey will close on May 31, 2024.

    In addition to this membership survey, the SCA Strategic Planning Task Force will be conducting Zoom interviews with focus groups in Spring 2024 to get more information on the experiences of archives workers in California. 

    If you are interested in learning more about participating in the SCA focus groups, or if you have any questions about this survey or about the strategic planning process, please email us at strategicplanning@calarchivists.org.

    Thank you for participating!

    Sincerely,

    SCA Strategic Planning Task Force
