Formed in 1992 by the merger of the Alberta Archives Council and the Alberta Society of Archivists, the Archives Society of Alberta (ASA) represents the province’s archival community and those interested in archives. Under its constitution, the objectives of the ASA are to:
- Provide a forum through which all those engaged or interested in archives work may meet and discuss issues of common interest
- Advocate on behalf of archival interests in Alberta
- Promote and advance the collection, preservation and use of archival materials, and to encourage and develop archival skills among those engaged in archival work by holding seminars and workshops on archival principles and practices; and distributing information relating to archival administration and practice.
