On the 17 March the ARA announced the cancellation of all its events and activities until the end of May 2020: https://www.archives.org.uk/news/790-ara-statement-on-impact-of-coronavirus-outbreak.html

This situation will be reviewed and updated at the next meeting of the ARA Board which will take place by teleconference on 22 April.

The Archives and Records Association sends it best wishes to all of our members at this difficult time. We will be holding another special #ArchiveHour this week from 8pm on Thursday 26 March to continue the conversation on the impact of coronavirus on the record-keeping sector.

I hope you can join us.
