Save the Date! 

Between May 29-31, 2024 the Archives Association of BC and ARMA VI will host the joint virtual conference: “Going further together: Connectivity and partnerships in the information profession.”

As the proverb goes: If you want to go fast, go alone, but if you want to go far, go together. Post-Covid, the information field is ready to reinvigorate and seek new partnerships to go further in our theory and practice. Join us for talks on innovative partnerships and relationship building initiatives in records management organizations and archives.
