Subgrp: 5. Council Records and Member Files, 1935-1992

Scope and Content Note

Physical Collection

Council consists of the president, vice-president, treasurer and nine councilors elected at-large by the Society. The files in this record subgroup were created by persons serving as elected Council members. Records vary among Council members, but generally include correspondence, meeting materials including referenced documents and minutes, and records regarding Council's interaction with SAA committees, sections, and roundtables. The majority of records in this subgroup--those processed after SAA's donation of its archives to UW-Milwaukee in April 2001--include only those compiled and created by members during their official terms of Council service.


Web Collection

This series also includes official pronouncements of the organization approved by the Council and promulgated publicly. SAA Council meeting agendas and minutes, including reports from appointed committees, component groups, working groups, and individual officers. Various iterations of SAA's strategic plan, including Vision and Mission Statements, Core Organizational Values, Goals, Strategies, and Key Performance Indicators. SAA's Governance Manual that describes the organization's structure, officers, component groups, awards program, and student chapters. And leadership resources and policies developed by SAA to assist leaders of sections, roundtables, committees, and other component groups with leadership policies and best practices.
