Deadline Extended to May 19
The ArchivesSpace Member Engagement sub-team is now accepting applications for the third cohort of the ArchivesSpace Member Match program.
The Member Match program is an initiative to engage the ArchivesSpace membership community, created and organized by the Member Engagement sub-team of the ArchivesSpace User Advisory Council, with support from the ArchivesSpace Community Engagement Coordinator. The program is intended to be a resource and venue for peer-to-peer support between ArchivesSpace members. For one, year-long term, Member Match participants will be matched with a member with whom they can receive and offer professional insight, advice, and comradery. The program will also offer participants the opportunity to engage in exclusive events and enlightening discussions about ArchivesSpace and its active user community.
The program includes:
- Monthly Listserv Discussion Topics
- Each month, a member of the Member Engagement sub-team will reach out to the Member Match listserv to spur discussion and encourage continued engagement between matches.
- Quarterly Member Match Meet-Ups
- These will be opportunities for large group socializing as well as the potential for dedicated time to spend with matches in breakout rooms.
- Option to participate in small group matches of 3 people
Any individual affiliated with an ArchivesSpace member organization is eligible to participate in the ArchivesSpace Member Match program and there is no limit to the number of individuals from a member organization that may participate.
