2022 Early Bird Renewal Campaign


It’s time to start thinking about renewing your ACA membership! 

The ACA Membership Committee is pleased to announce our annual renewal campaign.  In particular, with COVID-19 and the ACA Secretariat is working from home, members are encouraged to renew online using our online Membership Management System.

From Archivaria and our outstanding Annual Conference to mentorship and Special Interest Sections, the ACA provides programs designed to help you make the most of your archivist career. 

The ACA offers an annual membership to individuals that begins January 1 and continues to December 31 Members must have paid their membership fees to volunteer for committee positions, Board of Director roles and member rates for conference fees and workshops.

As a member of the ACA, you will be able to:

  • Support the ACA’s important advocacy and outreach activities including contributing to the ACA Blog, In the Field. 

  • Read and contribute to Archivaria, a world-leading journal of the study of archives. Individual members can opt in to have a print copy delivered.

  • Keep up-to-date with professional news through the ACA’s monthly newsletter, Scope and Content and our annual report published as The Bulletin.

  • Access the exclusive Members Only section of the ACA website, including a searchable electronic Directory of Members, proceedings from recent ACA conferences and access to the latest two issues of Archivaria.

  • Enjoy discounted pricing on ACA programming such as workshops and the annual conference.

  • Eligible for subsidized fees for workshops and the annual conference.
  • Participate in ACA Special Interest Sections devoted to Indigenous archives, electronic records, personal archives, religious archives, and university and college archives and more.

  • Members also gain access to a special discount from Carr McLean. Contact the ACA office to obtain the code.
  • Network with colleagues from across Canada and around the world.
  • Stand for election or elect members to the ACA Board of Directors.

  • Participate in the ACA’s Mentorship Program as either a mentee or mentor to strengthen our peer community. 


Eligibility for early-bird renewal will be in effect until December 31, 2021, so make sure to take advantage of this year’s excellent prizes!  Prizes will be drawn the week of January 4, 2022.

We would also like to point out that renewal is also your chance to update your online ACA member profile. To be included in the members-only directory, there is an opt-in feature where you can also select which contact details you would prefer shown. You may also update your Special Interest Group sections and indicate if you are a consulting archivist.

If you have opted in to receive a print copy of Archivaria, please make sure that you have indicated which address you wish to have it and other official ACA correspondence delivered to in 2022.  

If you have not yet signed into the system, you will be prompted to sign in using a unique email address and you will be prompted to reset your password.  If you are not sure, check with the office to ensure that you do not have multiple profiles.  There is space in your profile to include more than one email address. You can then update your member profile and ensure that your details and information is up to date.  You can then continue to pay online using Visa, Mastercard or your Visa Debit card. 

If you prefer to send a cheque, please send to the ACA Office address below as we are checking mail bi-monthly.  All renewals received by mail by January 4th, 2022 will be entered into the draw for a number of excellent prizes described below.
