Regional Archival Associations Consortium (RAAC)

The Regional Archival Associations Consortium (RAAC) provides a mechanism to connect the leadership of regional, multistate, state, and local archival organizations with each other and to the Society of American Archivists (SAA). RAAC seeks to facilitate information exchange and foster collaboration among these organizations. It offers formal channels to coordinate efforts intra-state, interstate, and with SAA which facilitate streamlining actions, reducing costs, and increasing services. Such efforts include but are not limited to advocacy, public awareness, education, disaster planning/recovery, and grant development.

Regional, multistate, state, and local archival organizations shall appoint a representative to RAAC to facilitate communication and foster collaboration. The term of office for each representative is at the discretion of the appointing organization. In addition, any person who is interested in participating in the work of RAAC may become a member by joining the RAAC listserv.

Chair: Michael Law, Society of Georgia Archivists (2019-2021)
