Professional Competencies for Archivists Working Group (PCAWG)
The ACA’s Professional Competencies for Archivists Working Group invites ACA members and non-members to participate in two virtual focus groups. The focus groups will provide feedback on the ACA’s draft Competency Framework.
What is a competency framework? A competency framework outlines skills required for a specific profession. The purpose of the ACA’s Competency Framework is to serve as a guide for career decisions and professional development planning, to assist employers in the recruitment process and training of staff, and to inform professional development curriculum.
The draft Competency Framework will be sent to participants one week before the focus group and participants are asked to read the draft Competency Framework prior to the focus group and provide feedback during the virtual meeting. The virtual meeting will be recorded for note taking purposes only. The recording will be deleted after notes are created. Identifiable information will not be included in the notes.
There will be additional opportunities to provide feedback on the ACA’s Competency Framework later in the fall.
