Notes

At its November 2018 meeting, SAA Council approved creation of a task force to pre-plan the next iteration of A*CENSUS (Archival Census and Education Needs Survey in the United States), which was last conducted in 2004. SAA President Meredith Evans noted that, “Both the profession and the association will benefit significantly from having updated information on archivists’ work settings, salaries, education levels, and more.”
