Kate Murray of the Library of Congress was elected as the new Vice Chair of the DPC Board at the Annual General Meeting of the Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC) this week. Kate will be familiar to many people within the digital preservation community for her work on the Federal Agencies Digital Guidelines Initiative (FADGI), leading the Sustainability of Digital Formats resource, as well as for her role as co-chair of the Email Preservation Task force which DPC co-sponsored in 2016.

Outgoing Vice Chair Kevin Ashley, who had been in post for 10 years, warmly endorsed Kate’s appointment saying that while he had thoroughly enjoyed the time he had spent on the Board, it was time for ‘new voices.’

Kate’s election to the role of Vice Chair coincides with the launch of a new DPC Strategic Plan for 2022 – 2027 and, on accepting the position, Kate said: “Kevin’s long-standing contribution to the DPC Board leaves enormous shoes to fill, but I am excited to take up this role and work closely with Members and Staff at the start of this new strategic chapter for the Coalition.”
