ARA Scotland is a vibrant and active nation, and holds meetings and events regularly throughout the year.

It seeks to represent the views of the diverse community of professionals working in this field.

ARA Scotland holds regular meetings at various locations throughout the country. All members are welcome to attend these events and will find them an invaluable way to keep up to date with issues affecting the records professions, both in Scotland and further afield. It is also a great opportunity to meet fellow professionals and share knowledge and experience.
In addition to the full meetings there are also regular meetings of the ARA Scotland Executive Committee as well as ASLAWG (Archivists of Scottish Local Authorities Working Group).
