Professional Competencies for Archivists Working Group: In 2011, the Educational Guidelines Review Task Force embarked on a two-year project to define the competencies required of practicing archivists. The ACA Board sees real value in this work, and believes, as an association representing professional archivists in Canada, that identifying professional competencies can serve as a cornerstone to our continued support of members. To this end, we are very pleased to announce the creation of a Professional Competencies for Archivists Working Group (PCAWG). The Board is seeking volunteers to serve on this working group, from each of the following constituencies: an educator from a graduate-level archives program, a practicing archivist, a recent graduate from an archival or information studies program, and a manager of an archival institution. A Board member will round out the membership. Please contact the ACA Office to submit your name to the Board for consideration.
