Elect your 2022 SIG chairs and co-chairs!

Each December, we ask the MCN community to elect chairs and co-chairs of our Special Interest Groups. SIGs, as we call them, are volunteer-led MCN members’ communities of practice that operate under the oversight of the MCN board. SIGs are organized around specific topics of interest or niche practice areas that reflect the diversity of the many technology and digital practices in the museum field (curious about how SIGs are governed? Read the SIG Charter).

SIG Chairs are all volunteers with a passion for their work and for helping their colleagues and the community around their specific practice area and beyond. This year, we thank Rachael Winter Durant, Katherine Nip, Madhav Tankha and Cathy Sigmond for their service as they step down from their role.

As you review this year’s slate of candidates, you’ll notice two new faces ready to lead your SIGs next year, and you’ll also notice that five SIGs will need co-chairs in 2022: DAM, Digital Imaging, Data & Insights, IP, and Human-Centered Design. If anyone is interested in joining forces with the single elected SIG Chairs, let us know at [email protected]. They’ll be able to appoint someone to serve alongside them in the new year.

You have until December 15, 2021 to elect your 2022 SIG Chairs!
