The ACA is committed to the ongoing professional development of its members. Members continually point to these rich opportunities to learn and connect as among the most valuable programs and services we offer.
Highlights of our professional development offerings include the following events and programs:
Each year, as part of the Annual Conference, the ACA’s Professional Learning Committee coordinates workshops designed for both archivists in the region hosting the conference as well as the many individuals travelling to attend the conference.
