Hi everyone!

The National Digital Stewardship Alliance<> calls for volunteers from NDSA member organizations<> to join the Planning Committee for Digital Preservation 2017<>.

Digital Preservation is the NDSA’s major meeting and conference—open to members and non-members alike—focusing on digital stewardship and preservation, data curation, and related issues. This year, it will be held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, October 25-26, 2017 after the DLF Forum<>.

Logistical arrangements will be handled by the Digital Library Federation, so that this committee can focus more fully on the program for #digipres17<>. Duties involve defining the vision for the event, drafting and circulating a CFP, coordinating the review and selection of proposals, crafting and publicizing the schedule, and collaborating with the DLF Forum planning committee to make this conference partnership a success. We anticipate monthly group calls and regular email exchanges April-October.

This is an opportunity to help shape a crucial venue for intellectual exchange, community-building, development of best practices, and national-level agenda-setting in the field of digital preservation—as well as to set the tone and direction for future NDSA events. Join us!

Volunteers from NDSA member organizations<> are asked to complete this form<> by Monday, March 6.

All best,
