Is your organization interested in taking a leadership role in the digital stewardship community? Consider applying to host and perform secretariat duties for the National Digital Stewardship Alliance.
The application process starts with your organization sending a letter of inquiry (up to one page) to the NDSA Coordinating Committee Chair, Micah Altman (escience [at] mit.edu). Follow-up calls and meetings will be scheduled to start a dialogue with the potential hosts about the goals of their organization, the goals of the NDSA and the mutual benefits in a partnership. These conversations with the Coordinating Committee and the potential hosts will continue over the summer with the hope that a selection is made in early August and the transition is made by the end of September.
Do you have questions about what is entailed in the host/secretariat role? Send an email to the NDSA Chair (escience [at] mit.edu) or send a letter of inquiry stating you organization is interested but wants to learn more. The deadline is June 30, 2015.
