The Visual Materials Section promotes communication among visual materials archivists, and represents and promotes appropriate care, management, and use of visual materials collections to the greater archival community through annual meetings, continuing education programs, publications, the VIEWS newsletter and this web site.
If you are a member of SAA and are interested in joining the Visual Materials Section, we would love to have you as a member! You can join our Section when you join or renew with SAA, or just email the SAA staff at firstname.lastname@example.org and request that they include you in the Section.
And we are always looking for some help, so please volunteer with us. For more information contact Kim Andersen, Communications Coordinator, at email@example.com
2017 STATE OF THE BYLAWS
The VM Steering Committee completed a Section Bylaws review in 2016, but because of the SAA change of roundtables to sections, they will be providing a template for by-laws for everyone. We are waiting for this template before we make changes. You can see the current proposed changes below, but these will perhaps change.
3 Year Plan
Every year we seek to include comments from the members of the VM section about the direction the leadership of the section is moving us. Please read and make comments if you have them, on the draft of the 2016-2019 Three year plan. Comments can be sent to any Steering Committee member!
