    Dear Colleagues,
    Thank you for signing up to be a part of the proposed RDA Archives and Records Professionals for Research Data IG. I’m very excited to kick this group off with fellow co-chair Rebecca Grant, as I think those of us with an appreciation for the work of archivists and records professionals have a great to offer the RDA community.
    I’d like to submit our proposed Interest Group Charter to be reviewed by RDA TAB, Council, and the broader community before Plenary 7 begins in Tokyo. This is a key step in our becoming a formal IG in RDA (if you’re interested in the full process, that info is here). Rebecca and I have put together a draft charter following the Interest Group Charter template, and it’s available for your review and comment as a Google Doc here.
    We’d appreciate it if you all could do the following by February 24 5pm CST:
    *Enter your email address and title in the “Potential Group Members” table at the bottom of the page
    *Review the full document and comment and/or suggest edits/additions/changes. We’d really be grateful for your insight and efforts in working to making this document as strong as it can be.
    If you’ll be in Tokyo for Plenary 7, please join us at our IG meeting!
    If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to post to the list or email Rebecca (***@***.***) & me directly.
    Looking forward to working with you all,
