Awards Committee is Looking for Membership Input

Awards Committee Input for 2019  - Deadline Friday November 30th, 2018

Within the archives profession in Canada there are many colleagues who deserve recognition.  There are many initiatives -- either by an individual or a team – that warrant accolades.

The ACA Awards Committee currently distributes three awards (Fellows, Membership Recognition Award, and Honorary Archivist).  While these awards are important, are they enough?  What awards could – or should – the ACA issue?  What can we do to more fully celebrate the work of archivists and archives in Canada?   

The ACA Awards Committee welcomes your input on the creation of one or more new awards.  What inspires our community? Who should be recognized in a new award?  What activities could a new award acknowledge? 

We invite you to submit ideas to the Awards Committee via email ( by Friday, November 30th.
