A Call to Action: Preserve SHARE’s Past for the Future

SHARE Past President Anne Caluori is working to collect and catalog important documents from SHARE’s more-than-60 years of history. 

Many of SHARE's long-standing member organizations participated in key working groups, producing white papers, cooperating in technical task forces, and developing presentations that, in retrospect, have influenced the complex computing industry from the 1960's to today.
