During the past two years, West Virginia archival institutions joined Virginia Heritage to broaden resources for researchers from both states. Virginia Heritage as a name has served us well for more than twenty years, but now that West Virginia has joined, it is time for a change.
Recently the membership voted on a new name for Virginia Heritage. The winner is Archival Resources of the Virginias (ARVAS). Thank you very much to everyone who suggested new names and voted!
The process of officially changing the name will take some time and will occur over the next several months. Karen King, a member of the Governance Team, has design experience and has graciously agreed to create a new logo. Once that is completed, the Outreach Team will update the WordPress site and promote the new name.
Stay tuned for future updates and opportunities to help with the transition.
