Do you want to contribute to the ACA and help deliver on its commitment to build a dynamic and progressive records and archives profession?

We are actively recruiting volunteers for the following leadership roles:

  • Education Committee

We are also seeking a member to serve as the ACA Representative to the Canadian Commission for UNESCO.

The ACA believes that a professional and intellectual community is enriched and enhanced by diversity along a number of dimensions, including, but not limited to, race, ethnicity and national origins, gender and gender identity, sexuality, class and religion. We are especially committed to increasing committee participation by members from groups that have been historically underrepresented in the records and archives profession. We encourage applications from ACA members at any stage of their careers and from all backgrounds.
