ARCHIVE TASK FORCE
The IPA archive project will catalogue over 100 years' worth of information about the IPA, including research, congress materials and board papers. The plan is to make this material available online to members and the public. The materials will be scanned and the electronic archive will be set up online with help of an archivist. The Task Force will guide the Broomhills office in this work, and offer recommendations where appropriate.
Ways of working and reporting
The Archive Task Force will be expected to do most of its work electronically, using Skype, GoToMeeting, or other free-to-use communication systems. The Task Force, like all IPA committees, will be expected to be self-supporting for secretarial and other purposes. Any face-to-face meetings should take place, so far as possible, adjacent to IPA or regional congresses. The Chair of the Committee will provide a written report to the Board at least annually.
This is a temporary task force and it is anticipated that it will finish its work by December 2016. The members of the Task Force will be appointed in the usual way, by the President of the IPA and with the consent of the Board of Representatives.
Composition of the committee
The Task Force will consist of a Chair, plus two members from each Region and one IPSO candidate. The Task Force may request the appointment of Consultants as needed (Consultants will not be funded to attend in-person meetings).
The Committee will propose a budget during the annual IPA budget cycle. They will have access to the web and email support services offered by Broomhills.
