<!--td {border: 1px solid #ccc;}br {mso-data-placement:same-cell;}-->Organized in 1972, MARAC is a volunteer, regional consortium of archivists who live and work in the states of Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia, and in the District of Columbia.The initial purposes of the group were to plan practical action-oriented conferences and workshops and to seek additional means of increasing professional competence, preserving local historical resources, and promoting cooperation with colleagues in related fields. Semi-annual meetings have continued to be a major focus of MARAC's activities from 1972 to the present. These meetings have offered a wide range of workshops and tours designed to appeal to a broad cross-section of the membership-from beginning archivists to experienced professionals and staff from both small and large repositories. To an increasing degree sessions at the meetings are designed to relate to an overall theme. Two thematic meetings resulted in the publication of two archival symposia papers, Constitutional Issues and Archives and Automation in Archives.
