Becoming a Member
Individual membership shall be accorded to any person who supports the objectives of the Society, who is engaged in archival work and who has paid the annual membership fee of the Society. Individual members in good standing have the right to vote and hold office in the Society.
Institutional membership shall be accorded to those institutions that are engaged in the identification, preservation and use of archival records. They must have an operational mandate, formal commitment of resources, public access policy, and opening hours equivalent to at least one (1) day or seven hours per week and operating procedures consistent with generally recognized archival practices. An institutional member in good standing shall designate only one representative to vote and to be eligible to hold office in the society. To receive an Institutional Membership package application form, please email Rene Georgopalis, Archives Advisor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
(Applications for Institutional Membership will be approved by the ASA Board of Directors.)
Associate Institutional Membership
Associate Institutional membership shall be accorded to those institutions that support the purposes and Constitution of the Society, are engaged in or interested in archival work, have paid the annual membership dues of the Society, but do not qualify for institutional membership. An Associate Institutional member in good standing shall designate only one person to vote and to be eligible to hold office in the Society.
Sustaining membership is open to any individual or institution who wishes to support the goals and objectives of the ASA by paying more than the set fee established in the Individual, Associate Institutional, and Institutional membership categories. A sustaining member shall have the right to vote and to be eligible to hold office in the Society.
