Biography/History: SAA established the Basic Archival Conservation Program under an NEH grant in 1980. The initial program consisted of basic workshops, consultant visits, and the publication of a manual on conservation. SAA expanded the program with a second NEH grant for the period 1982-1984 and included new workshops on the Administration of Photographic Collections and an Introduction to Microforms. In 1984, Council created the position of education officer in the Chicago office. Timothy L. Ericson served as the first education officer from January through July 1984.

In June 1991, Council created the Education Office Advisory Board as a standing committee charged with advising on the offerings and administration of SAA's educational offerings. In its January 1997 report to Council, the Task Force on Organizational Effectiveness (TFOE) recommended that the Committee on Education and Professional Development assume the responsibilities of the advisory board and that the board itself be abolished. Council acted on the TFOE's recommendation during its January 1998 meeting.

In June 1999, Council established a Task Force on Continuing Education to evaluate and make recommendations regarding the future of the Society's education program and the position of an education officer. In its final report, presented May 2000, the task force recommended a major shift in the program, primarily supporting a move from offering basic workshops to offering online courses.
