SGA Members Testify Before Congress

On June 9, 2010, SGA members Kaye Minchew and Karen Jefferson testified before the Subcommittee on Information Policy, Census and National Archives at a hearing entitled "Strengthening the National Historical Publications and Records Commission". A webcast of the hearing is available on the website of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

SGA Fellow Kaye Minchew is the Executive Director of the Troup County Historical Society and Archives. Karen Jefferson is Records Manager at the Robert W. Woodruff Library of the Atlanta University Center. Ms. Minchew appeared as a representative of the National Association of Government Archivists & Records Administrators, on whose Board she has served for many years. Ms. Jefferson appeared as an experienced archivist and records manager to specifically discuss the work of State Historical Records Advisory Boards, in particular, the Georgia Historical Records Advisory Board (GHRAB). The prepared testimony of both Ms. Minchew and Ms. Jefferson is available online.

Please join me in congratulating our colleagues on this accomplishment. Both Ms. Minchew and Ms. Jefferson are long term members on SGA with recognition on a national level and a demonstrated dedication to the advocacy of archival enterprise.
