Members and Membership

Section Membership

SAA members may officially join sections by indicating their selections on the membership application or renewal form, or by contacting the SAA staff at In order to ensure that the Lone Arrangers Section continues to meet SAA's minimum membership requirements, the co-chairs urge you, if you’ve not already done so, to officially sign up for the Lone Arrangers Section. Thank you!

While the majority of the members of the Lone Arrangers Section are SAA members, anyone is able to join our section. This is an especially good way to experience all that SAA has to offer before making any commitments. Nonmembers can attend SAA conferences (at a slightly higher fee) and benefit from the network of professionals that SAA Sections provide. 

We highly encourage any lone arranger/small shop archivist to join our Section and make some great connections with colleagues who work in similar situations.

Online Membership Connections
The SAA Connect Lone Arrangers Section is our section discussion board. Search past posts or start a new thread for career or collection advice from other Lone Arrangers, announcements, and calls for papers.

Through the efforts of some members of the Lone Arrangers community, we have two online outlets for creating and participating in a virtual community for all lone arrangers:

  • LinkedIn
  • Facebook Group (NOTE: you must have a registered Facebook account and be logged in to view this page).
