CoSA Welcomes New Corporate Sponsors

We are pleased to announce that FamilySearch, the largest nonprofit genealogy organization in the world, is sponsoring the CoSA's expanded Awards Program this year. Susan Lugo (Virgin Islands), CoSA Board and Development Committee member, expressed her appreciation for FamilySearch's support, stating, "FamilySearch is an important partner with many state archives in making records widely available. The work they do complements our work."

Also joining the ranks of corporate sponsorship this year are HISTORY (TM), a member of the A+E Networks and the leading destination for award-winning original series and specials that connect viewers with history in an informative, immersive and entertaining manner across all platforms. "HISTORY's sponsorship will be used throughout CoSA's programming," said Chris Ward, CoSA Treasurer and Development Committee member.
