Abstract: Leadership shapes our professional culture and can influence the strength of organizational outreach and advocacy programs now and in the future. How do archivists view the role of leaders and leadership within SAA and the profession as a whole? This poster presents data obtained through a July 2012 survey focused on perceptions of how SAA leadership roles are attained, supported, and developed. Surveys were distributed through the Archives & Archivists listserv as well as the listservs of many regional and state archival organizations. Presented at the 2012 Society of American Archivists Research Forum, San Diego, California.
