Advisory Board

The North Carolina Digital Heritage Center’s advisory board is composed of leaders from professional organizations and institutions representative of the broad variety of cultural heritage organizations eligible to work with the Digital Heritage Center. The board meets annually and advises the Digital Heritage Center staff on policies and collection development. The board plays an important role in helping to determine priorities for major projects.

Board members representing specific institutions or organizations have standing appointments to the advisory board.

Professional organizations will be represented by the president or other office-holder designated by the organization and will rotate off when their term of office is completed or after two years.

Rotating board members will be selected by the North Carolina Digital Heritage Center in consultation with the State Library of North Carolina. These members will serve two-year terms.
