Registration for the following upcoming AABC professional development
opportunities is available...please note the registration deadlines:

*Workshop: "Archives 101: Archival Practice for Indigenous Organizations"

Four online sessions: January 23 - February 1, 2023

Registration deadline: December 31, 2022 (3 spots left!)

Registration cost: $50.00 CAD

“Archives 101: Archival Practice for Indigenous Organizations” will be of
interest to Tribal/First Nations Government administrators, archivists,
cultural memory keepers, community members, and students working to support
Indigenous archives programs. The workshop will provide an introduction to
archival theory and best practices that participants will be able to use on
a daily basis. Workshop participants will learn how to create a foundation
for developing their archives program and strategies for the practical
management and appraisal of records. They will learn how to process and
provide access to records created on different media formats (textual
records, audio-visual, sound recordings and electronic records). Workshop
discussion will also include best practices for disaster planning, where to
find archival resources, and different funding opportunities available for
Indigenous organizations. Woven throughout the discussion topics will be
reflections on how western archival practices can be balanced and
integrated to support Indigenous practices and protocols of knowledge
sharing and access.

The AABC would like to acknowledge and thank the BC Arts Council
<https://www.bcartscouncil.ca/> for providing funding to deliver this
workshop and allow for the subsidized registration fee.

Registration deadline: January 5, 2023

Registration cost: AABC members $350.00 / Non-members $500.00, plus the

Architectural records are perhaps the least understood medium in the
archival world. There are many different types of drawings - from
blueprints to renderings, sketches to CADs. What should you accept, what is
valuable, how are they best preserved? Using the publication *Architectural
Records: Managing Design and Construction Records*, students will be
introduced to the management of plans and drawings over seven modules that
cover the history of architecture, appraisal of architectural drawings,
arrangement and description, preservation, access, and digitization best

*AABC Anti-Racism Bursary:*
Applications are now being accepted for the Anti-Racism Bursary that covers
the course registration cost and textbooks for the "Managing Plans and
Drawings" distance education course for one Indigenous, Black and/or Person
of Colour (IBPOC). For more information about the Bursary and instructions
on how to apply, please visit: AABC Anti-Racism Bursary

Bursary application deadline: December 31, 2022
