The Association of Catholic Diocesan Archivists is committed to the active promotion of professionalism in the management of diocesan archives in North America, as reflected in our work to establish an archival program in every diocese and to assist bishops and chancellors in the development of such programs. The Association meets biennially for a conference at St. Mary of the Lake Seminary during the summer of even years. The conference consists of workshops and sessions exploring issues such as disaster planning, records management, policies and procedures regarding sacramental records, automation in the archives, and other archival issues. During the odd years, the Association meets in conjunction with the annual meeting of the Society of American Archivists.
