Each year in conjunction with the Annual Conference, ACA Professional Learning Committee coordinates one or more workshops which will be of interest both to archivists located in the region hosting the conference as well as to many individuals planning to attend the conference. These workshops offer intermediate to advanced information on a variety of topics, set with 1/2 day, full day and 2-day time periods, immediately prior or following the conference sessions.
The ACA Institute offers advanced level information, over a 2 or 3-day time period.
