The Core Partners include representatives for state and regional archival description aggregators. Members do not represent their institution but rather leverage their background and experience within the field to inform the group's work.
Core Partners are expected to:
Identify one or more individuals who can provide complete, objective, and correct information on the past and/or present program, for incorporation into a profile of the current US archival description aggregator landscape;
Review the profile and findings, in advance of the symposium;
Prepare for and attend the symposium;
Serve on one or more working groups after the symposium and participate actively in the work of those groups;
Participate actively in formulating and vetting the action plan that results from this work.

Advisory Partners include representatives for state and regional projects or programs that provide some form of support for finding aid and archival description aggregation, but who do not have capacity at this time to be Core Partners. This group also includes those entities no longer providing services, as well as those planning to do so in the future.
Advisory Partners who provide profile information are expected to:
Identify one or more individuals who can provide complete, objective, and correct information on the past and/or present program, for incorporation into a profile of the current US archival description aggregator landscape.
Review and optionally provide feedback on the action plan that results from this project.
Advisory Partners will be most actively engaged during November 2018 - January 2019.
