The National Archives has posted two new senior executive positions: 1) Legislative Archives, Presidential Libraries, and Museum Services; and 2) Research Services. We are hoping that you can assist us in making sure that a diverse set of people are aware of and apply for these positions. The National Archives is seeking results-oriented executives to lead the provision of world class service to customers seeking access to Federal, Presidential, and Legislative records.

The Research Services Executives reports to the Chief Operating Officer and is charged with providing world-class services to customers wanting to access NARA's accessioned Federal records. This executive is responsible for integrating the scope and management of archival and preservation-related functions for Federal records currently performed by the Office of Records
Services-Washington, DC and the Office of Regional Records Services. This consolidation fosters a cohesive, collaborative national program, oriented toward public access of Federal records, that relies upon collaboration of staff teams across geographic and unit-specific boundaries, and a formal management team uniting oversight of archival operations nationwide. Fundamentally, program priorities are founded upon new, formalized methods of listening to, identifying, and meeting customer needs.

The Legislative Archives, Presidential Libraries, and Museum Services, Executive reports to the Chief Operating Officer, leads NARA's national education and exhibits programs, and provides executive guidance to the Center for Legislative Archives, the Presidential Libraries system, and the Presidential Materials staff, including all archival and access functions
