ARA South West
Welcome to ARA South West.
This region covers Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Somerset and Wiltshire and the Channel Islands.
In the following pages you can find details of:
- your regional representatives and who to contact for help
- news, activities, training and events in your area
- minutes of the Regional meetings
We meet three or four times a year in archive repositories around the region. Meetings offer the opportunity to share ideas and experiences with colleagues, learn what is happening within the Association and in the wider archival community, and discuss current issues with speakers from other sectors. Recent meetings have been held at Planned Environment Therapy Trust, Cheltenham; University of Bristol Theatre Collection; Exeter Cathedral and Gloucestershire Archives.
The region acts as a link with the Archive and Record Association's' central organisation, giving us the chance to discuss and influence archival issues nationally.
The region also runs training events which will be advertised here and on the ARA Events Calendar.
Non-members are welcome to all events.
Please review our Aims and Objectives. Please note that we will be discussing and updating these at our AGM: Aims_Objectives_2014-15.doc
