Joint ICA-ARA statement on 2019

ARA & ICA | 5 June 2018

After discussion and careful consideration, the International Council on Archives and the Archives and Records Association (UK & Ireland) have decided not to offer a joint conference in 2019. We tried hard, looking at a number of options, but in the end were not able to reconcile the needs of both organisations nor their members.

Each organisation will now move forward with its own conference for 2019. The Executive Officers and the Secretary General of the ICA are in discussions with other venues and plan to communicate more information to the membership by mid-October 2018. The ARA is now looking at alternative 2019 venues in the UK and Republic of Ireland and will communicate the alternative choice to members in due course.

If ICA members have any questions or concerns they can contact Anthea Seles, Secretary General at: seles@ica.org 

ARA members should contact the CEO (John Chambers) at: john.chambers@archives.org.uk
