Joining Professional Organizations


Published: April 18, 2016 by Anna Maloney

Joining professional organizations is a great way to network with other archivists and records managers. Networking benefits include being introduced to others in your research area; having awareness of workshops, webinars, and other training; connecting with potential employers; and participating in and advancing the professional dialogue.

MARA students from across the country enjoy many great options when choosing a professional organization to become a student or regular member of. The Society of American Archivists Student Chapter is an excellent way to become involved with other students in the program and to lead engagement in the SJSU community. You can also find a directory of regional organizations on SAA’s website.
