We are so excited for all of the applications we received for the 2016 Archives Leadership Institute, with 40% more applicants this year over last year! Not only is the quantity of applications greater, but the quality of applicants is also very impressive. The committee will have a hard time getting their list of candidates down to 25. There was a large variety of applicants from all over the US, in a wide range of sectors and demographics, many with fascinating rolls in the archival world. We will be announcing this year’s cohort by February. Many thanks to everyone who took the time to apply or to nominate someone.
Applications for the 2017 Cohort will be made available in the fall.
