CoSA Committees & Task Forces

CoSA could not accomplish its ambitious agenda without the help of state archives professionals from around the country who serve on CoSA committees and task forces. CoSA has several opportunities to serve on standing committees and temporary task forces. Please contact Barbara Teague for more information about these opportunities.
