As of 14 December 2021, the NDSA Leadership voted to welcome its seven most recent applicants into the membership. Each new member brings a host of skills and experience to our group. Please keep an eye out for them on your calls and be
sure to give them a shout out; please join me in welcoming our new members: Digital Library of the Caribbean, University of Wisconsin-Madison General Library System, the ARK Alliance, Black Beauty Archives, the University of the District of Columbia, the City
of LaPorte Texas, and CLOCKSS. You can read more about each of our new members on the
NDSA news blog.
In addition to approving new memberships, the Coordinating Committee also voted to remove 14 members in 2021. These members were removed after several years of no contact, despite multiple attempts to try. It is vital that NDSA members
keep their contacts updated, if you’ve had changes in our organization, please complete the
Membership Contact Update form. More information about updating your contacts can be found on the
Member Orientation webpage.
