HAI Division Director Appointed to California Records Board
Gabriele G. Carey, director of History Associates’ Western Area Office, was recently appointed to the California Historical Records Advisory Board (CHRAB) by Nancy Zimmelman, the California State Archivist. Her term on CHRAB will run from January 2007 through December 2009. Dr. Carey will begin her service at the board’s next meeting in June.
The CHRAB works in partnership with the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) to serve the needs of California constituencies involved in the management and preservation of historical records. Under federal regulations, the state board’s two principal roles are to act as the coordinating body for historical records activities throughout California and to review NHPRC grants from California organizations and make recommendations to the national commission. Dr. Carey looks forward to joining the nine other board members who represent various state agencies, as well as archival and historical organizations, in conducting the work of the board.
