MAC Membership Benefits


Meetings held semiannually provide opportunities for attendees with varying levels of experience to build or enhance their archival competence. Each year's fall and spring meetings feature two full days of lectures, panel discussions, tours, and workshops covering a broad range of subjects. Both fall and spring meeting sites are dispersed throughout the 13-state region. Registration costs are modest to encourage attendance.


Workshops developed and taught by leaders of the profession provide intensive study in all aspects of archival work for a low cost. Workshops are held in conjunction with the meetings or as requested by the membership.

MAC Newsletter

MAC Newsletter, published quarterly, is a compendium of timely information for and about MAC members. The newsletter contains brief technical articles, news about members, and updates on association governance actions. It also disseminates news about related organizations, notices of meetings and workshops, news about archival-related legislation, and job announcements. Contributions from members are always welcome.

Archival Issues

Archival Issues, MAC's semiannual refereed journal, is highly regarded in the profession for the range of topics addressed and the quality of its articles on issues facing the contemporary archivist. The editorial board encourages diversity in topics and points of view. Member contributions to the journal are always welcome.
