PLEASE NOTE: there is a NEW deadline for the 2015 Distinguished Service Award! Since the MARAC Spring meeting with NEA is earlier than our traditional meeting, we need to move up the deadline by a few weeks to January 26, but this still gives you 12 weeks to nominate someone!
The Mid-Atlantic Regional Archives Conference (MARAC) was born from a desire to support local archivists with opportunities for professional development, education, and collaboration. As a volunteer organization, MARAC depends on the sustained dedication and efforts of our members to provide these valuable services. MARAC values and honors those who have committed their time and expertise to developing and promoting our wonderful programs. The Distinguished Service Award (DSA) recognizes accomplished members who have made significant contributions to MARAC’s success and to the broader archival profession. The DSA Committee is currently seeking nominees for this annual award. Recognition will be accompanied by a $250 honorarium, provided through the generosity of Hollinger Metal Edge, Inc
