The Issues & Advocacy Section (I&A) of the Society of American Archivists (SAA) supports the goals and mission of the Society. As a forum for discussion of the critical issues facing the archival profession, the I&A is committed to outreach and advocacy efforts which support the continued growth of the archival profession and nurture archivists and archives.

We are champions of archivists and the archival profession and of archives as building blocks of history and community.  We promote their value and relevancy within and outside of the archival profession.  We are advocates.
