Administrative History

The Archivist of Central Texas is a professional organization composed of archivists in the greater Austin metro area. The goal of the organization is to increase contact and communication between archivists and those working with records, to provide opportunities for professional development, and to promote archival repositories and activities in the greater Austin area. The organization has had several incarnations through the years beginning with the Austin Archivists. The group was revitalized in 1989 as the Austin Archivists Associated and then again in 2007 as the Archivists of Central Texas.
