Membership with ART entitles you to discounts on registration fees for our monthly programs and education workshops. In addition, ART members enjoy access to members-only events and tours, as well as voting privileges for the annual ART Board elections.
From September through June, ART organizes, at minimum, one program per month. Venues for ART programs have included:
In addition to monthly programs which focus on a particular local cultural institution or a topic related to archives, ART holds at least two educational workshops a year. There are also annual events such as the celebration of New York Archives Week every October, the ART Awards Ceremony, the Holiday Party, and our Year-End Meeting in June.
ART members can also join monthly, topic-specific discussion groups, where they can brainstorm with their peers about issues that affect them. Our small discussion groups are geared towards specific audiences within the ART community and each meeting focuses on a pre-determined topic
An additional, important benefit in joining ART is the opportunity to network. We are part of a uniquely tight-knit professional community and it is important to meet as many people as possible to encourage professional growth. 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.
