About Seattle Area Archivists

First organized in 1985, Seattle Area Archivists (SeaAA) was formed for the purpose of allowing Seattle archivists “to become acquainted with one another and their archives, share knowledge of resources, and increase professional awareness.” Over thirty years later, SeaAA remains committed to providing opportunities for the informal exchange of information among its members and to promoting the preservation and use of archival, manuscript, and other specialized research materials in the Seattle area and greater Puget Sound region.

Statement of Purpose

  • to disseminate information on research materials and archival methodology
  • to provide a forum for the discussion of matters of common concern and promote continuing education
  • to cooperate with other similar cultural and educational organizations

Organizational Structure

Seattle Area Archivists is registered as a nonprofit corporation in Washington State. Programs and other activities are planned by a volunteer steering committee and are funded by annual membership dues.
