REPS elections are around the corner. Are you thinking of getting involved? Here is why you should run for early professional co-chair, according to Brittany Austin:
Overall, serving as REPS Co-Chair has been a great opportunity for career development, and the perfect way to meet people in the field. If you enjoy planning events, working with a team with diverse professional backgrounds, volunteering at amazing archives, and building a network of archivists and librarians – then please consider running for Co-Chair of NEA REPS. You’ll contribute to a wonderful group that cares about working with and supporting the local archives community, sharing skills and resources. If you’re out of school and looking for a new way to get involved with an active professional network in New England, take a closer look at the opening for REPS Early Professional Co-Chair.
