MembershipBenefits of Joining ART
Membership to the Archivists Round Table of Metropolitan New York, Inc. entitles you to discounts on our monthly meetings and workshops, access to the biannual newsletter Metropolitan Archivist via email, and voting privileges.
From September through June, ART typically holds one general meeting per month. In past years we’ve held meetings at Carnegie Hall, FIT, the National Archives, WITNESS, and the Noguchi Museum, among others. In addition to monthly programs which generally provide an overview of a particular institution or topic, ART is also committed to holding at least two educational workshops a year. There are also annual events such as the celebration of Archives Week in October, our Awards Ceremony, the Annual Holiday Party, and our business meeting in June.
ART has also inaugurated another type of meeting for its members. Our small discussion groups are geared towards specific audiences within the ART community and each meeting focuses on a pre-determined topic. The idea is for ART members to share and brainstorm with their peers about issues that affect them.
In addition to practical knowledge, a main benefit of joining ART is the opportunity to network. We are part of a small, tight-knit professional community and it is important to meet as many people as possible. This will not only help you with your future job searches, but will also provide you with professional resources throughout your career. ART has been around for more than 30 years and represents over 215 repositories; there is a lot of wisdom and experience in the organization. You can meet other members via the ART listserv and our Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn pages.Membership Levels
