We are also active advocates for the issues that concern our members,
who include faculty, students, staff, administrators, cultural
heritage workers, and independent scholars and developers. We depend
on our membership to inform us of specific issues we should advocate
for, and initiatives we can undertake that will best serve their
concerns. Of course members also elect the ACH officers and Executive
