The Position

Particularly since the Alliance values its archives and in view of its headquarters being a Historic House Museum, the recording secretary’s position is of special importance in capturing the organization’s history each year. This she does when taking minutes at all board meetings that are submitted for board approval and then placed in permanent records for the DCMSA&F.
