MAC Emeritus Membership Award


Each year the MAC Membership Committee solicits nominations from the MAC membership for candidates to the status of Emeritus Member. The nominee must be an individual member of MAC, retired from paid archival work and have been a MAC member for a minimum of 10, not necessarily consecutive, years. More importantly, nominees must have made a significant and substantial contribution to MAC during their archival career. The Emeritus Membership Award and special membership status of Emeritus Member were created to recognize those who have contributed to the success, growth, and visibility of MAC through committee work, programming, outreach, and governance. The award intends to recognize those who work behind the scenes for MAC, as well as those who have been honored by election to office.
