The Advocacy Committee addresses significant issues facing archivists at the national and regional levels. The Committee is dedicated to actively promoting and supporting the archives profession and the work of archivists. The Committee: serves as a voice for the archives community; reports on pending state and federal legislation in a timely manner; promotes archives and archival issues to government, decision-makers, funders, other organizations, the media and the general public; and provides resources to archivists so they can better advocate for the profession, their repositories, and themselves.
Our mission is to provide leadership to archivists and to provide direction on important policy issues to the community as a whole.
