The Council of State Archivists (CoSA) is a professional nonprofit organization of the official government repositories of the fifty states, five territories, and the District of Columbia. CoSA members are the state-level counterparts of the National Archives. They perform many parallel functions related to the preservation of and access to government records documenting the rights of citizens, assuring government accountability, and connecting all Americans with our individual and shared histories.
In light of the recent nomination of Dr. Colleen Shogan for the position of AOTUS, CoSA submitted the following questions on September 12, 2022 to the United States Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs for consideration during her upcoming Senate confirmation hearing. Each contains three parts: a) factual context; b) CoSA’s expectations of the Archivist of the United States; and c) the question itself.
We thank the members of our Executive and Advocacy Committees for their thoughtful drafting and editing. CoSA will continue to engage in this process as we look forward to a successful confirmation of Dr. Shogan.
