MAC Newsletter

The MAC Newsletter's primary mission is to share information about archival happenings in the Midwest and to promote through that sharing the archival services we bring to our constituents. Advocating the importance and value of archives in the Midwest lies at the core of MAC's existence and its newsletter supports that.

The Public Information Officer and Membership Coordinator will be full members of the committee by virtue of their office.
