Archivist Elected to Lead Statewide Organization

University of Dayton associate archivist Amy Rohmiller was elected vice president/president-elect of the Society of Ohio Archivists (SOA) at the organization’s June meeting. 

Rohmiller has served as a member of SOA’s advocacy and outreach committee since 2018 and as a member of the SOA Council since 2019. 

“I am excited to build upon my knowledge and experiences within SOA,” Rohmiller shared. “It feels as though we are truly beginning a new chapter due to the many changes around us all.”

Her election coincides with SOA’s pivot to a virtual annual meeting in response to COVID-19 and the formation of a task force on social justice and Black Lives Matter. 

“As vice president/president-elect, I will work to ensure this task force continues as we continue to identify ways to incorporate antiracist ideas and principles into our work as an organization and as archival practitioners,” Rohmiller said.

Rohmiller joined the University of Dayton in November 2018. She is a member of the University Libraries diversity and inclusion and marketing and outreach teams. 

Founded in 1968, the Society of Ohio Archivists works to improve the state of archives in Ohio by promoting the archival profession and providing professional development and networking opportunities for Ohio’s professional and aspiring archivists. It is the oldest continuously operating state organization devoted to the archival profession in the United States. View more information at
