    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.

    Mark your calendars for two "mini-conferences" to take place in Sacramento and San Diego on August 28th, each with a workshop offering on August 27.

    SCA is sponsoring these gatherings under its Member Initiated Events program, and each has a regional organizing committee.  With our AGM out of state at the Denver Western Roundup this year, these small conferences will provide great in-state programming and training opportunities for our members -- at minimal cost!

    Stay tuned on the West Arch listserv and here for further details.

    For more information about the Sacramento mini-conference, co-sponsored by the Gold Country Archivists, please send an email to

    For more information about the San Diego mini-conference, contact program chair Katie Richardson at .
