Secretary of State Jim Condos announced the recognition of Vermont State Archives and Records Administration (VSARA) Director Tanya Marshall by the Society of American Archivists (SAA). Established in 2011, the emerging-leader award recognizes work of broad merit to the profession, and demonstrated leadership qualities.
Condos noted that Marshall is only the second recipient of this prestigious award. She joined the VSARA staff in 2005 and was nominated for the award by former state archivist Gregory Sanford.
Marshall is an appointee to the Advisory Committee on the Rules of Public Access to Court Records. She was a leader in establishing a collaborative framework for VSARA and the Department of Information and Innovation to address records issues in a digital world. Marshall also oversaw the consolidation of Vermont’s records management program with the state archives.
In addition to her Vermont work, Marshall is vice-president of the National Association of Government Archives and Records Administrators; serves on the executive committee of the Council of State Archivists; and is a member of a standards committee on records and information management with ARMA International, a professional organization for records and information managers.

Hospitalists can help patients achieve a smooth, speedy recovery by following up on tests and adjusting treatments throughout the day as necessary. Because they are devoted to only hospital patients, Hospitalists are often able to spend more time talking to patients and their loved ones about care. They also stay in close contact with a patient’s primary-care physician.
