Massachusetts State Historical Records Advisory Board Reactivated

The Secretary of State Office, the Massachusetts Archives, and the National Historical Publications and Records Commission is pleased to announce that the Massachusetts State Historical Records Advisory Board (MSHRAB) has been reactivated.

A State Historical Records Advisory Board (SHRAB) is appointed in each state and consists of at least seven members, including the State Historical Records Coordinator. The SHRAB serves as the central advisory body for historical records planning and for Commission-funded projects developed and carried out within the state, as a coordinating body to facilitate cooperation among historical records repositories and other information agencies within the state, and as a state-level review body for proposals as defined in the Commission's grant program guidelines.
