    Society of California Archivists members recently voted to approve a revision to section 3-4 of SCA’s Bylaws by the three fifths majority vote required for such a revision.  The revision now makes the position of immediate past president on the SCA’s Board of Directors  a voting director.  The vote was necessary because the California Non-Profits Corporation Code no longer allows non-voting members on the board of mutual non-profit organizations. Our position of immediate past president had been  non-voting. The vote to revise our bylaws was coupled with SCA’s general election, which ended 3 May. 


Report of the Strategic Planning Task Force

Thank you SCA members who filled out our Strategic Planning survey in November 2012.  The results of the survey and the Task Force's recommendations on SCA priorities were presented at our AGM in April 2013.  The report itself can be read from the Strategic Planning Task Force page.

These guides will help you to care for your photographs and family history documents, and give you useful “how to” advice on conducting an oral history or a neighborhood history.  Now available in English, Spanish and Chinese.
