The Regional Archival Associations Consortium (RAAC) provides an official venue for information exchange among the leadership of regional archival organizations, and among the Regionals and the Society of American Archivists. The Group serves as a formal entity for fostering collaboration among the Regionals, and between the Regionals and SAA. It offers formal channels to coordinate efforts intra-state, interstate, and with SAA which facilitate streamlining actions, reducing costs, and increasing services to archivists around the nation. Such efforts include but are not limited to advocacy, public awareness, education, disaster planning/recovery, and grant development.
Membership in RAAC is open to archival associations at the local, state, or multi-state level. Eligible regional associations are comprised of individual archivists, not groupings of institutions. Archivists serving on RAAC are appointed by the regional association they represent, with one representative per association.
