Annual Conference: 30 Aug – 1 Sept 2017, Manchester, UK

‘Challenge the Past. Set the Agenda.’

Our Association marks a milestone in 2017 – it is 70 years since the foundation of the modern record keeping profession in the UK and Ireland. This is our opportunity to challenge where we have come from and now are, how we think, what issues matter for our future, and what role we can, and should be playing in modern society. This applies to all of us, as archivists, records managers and conservators, in equal measure; and to our relationships within the professions and outwith - through the varied analogue and digital environments we all work in.
