The Issues & Advocacy Section (I&A) of the Society of American Archivists (SAA) supports the goals and mission of the Society. As a forum for discussion of the critical issues facing the archival profession, I&A is committed to outreach and advocacy efforts which support the continued growth of the archival profession and nurture archivists and archives. For more detail, please refer to the Issues and Advocacy Statement of Mission, Vision, and Core Values.

In January 2016, the Issues & Advocacy Section launched a Wordpress website. The Steering Committee decided to add this platform to make our blog and Advocacy Toolkit more accessible. We will still be maintaining our official documentation (bylaws, meeting minutes, etc.) on this SAA hosted microsite.
