Town Clerk Jo-Ann Raia was recently awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award for Leadership in Archives and Records Management by the New York State Archives and the Archives Partnership Trust.
The award was presented to Raia at a ceremony at the Cultural Education Center in Albany recently.
Raia has been a champion for archives and records management. She developed a computerized records management program, which manages the holdings of the Records Center and Archives. Because of her Raia’s hard work and dedication, the Town Clerk’s Records Center and Archives serve as a model for the entire state.
“We applaud the organizations and individuals who work every day to manage records to ensure accountability, efficiency and accessibility,” said Interim State Education Commissioner Beth Berlin. “Their dedication to archives and records management has inspired excellent programs and processes that serve as models for the entire state.”
