About

I’m Erin Lawrimore, university archivist at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. This blog represents my personal opinion, not those of my employer, of the Society of American Archivists, or SAA Council.

In Spring 2016, I was elected to a three-year term on the Society of American Archivists’ Council. The 12-member SAA Council is the organization’s governing body. It is responsible for ensuring SAA’s financial stability and growth, developing and implementing the Society’s strategic priorities, providing overall leadership and direction for SAA and its component groups, building and coordinating relationships with individuals and groups outside of SAA, and providing oversight of the Society’s executive office. This blog is a site for me to talk about my experience serving on Council.

I have two Pembroke Welsh Corgis with historically-themed named. Francis Marion (Franny) and William Jasper (Jasper) are named after Revolutionary War soldiers who fought in/near my home state of South Carolina.

You can also follow me on Twitter where I primarily talk about archives and dogs. Or, if you just want to see a lot of cute corgi pictures without the rest of the archives-y stuff, Instagram.
