ARA Archive Volunteering Award 2012

ARA Archive Volunteering Award 2012

The Archives and Records Association seeks to celebrate the role of volunteers in supporting archive services, and to collect good practice case studies to inform the wider sector. 

TheARA Archive Volunteering Award is a key strand of the work of ARA’s PSQG sub-committee on Volunteering, bringing to life the recommendations of NCA’s 2009 Volunteering in Archives report.

The award is also supported by The National Archives, CyMAL: Museums Archives and Libraries Wales (a division of the Welsh Government), and the Scottish Council on Archives.

Cementing ARA’s new position in the archive sector, this award is open to archives across the United Kingdom and Ireland.  Awards will be publicised widely throughout and beyond the sector.

 We welcome nominations for the award.  A short nomination form is available from the ARA website and organisations may nominate projects, or ongoing volunteer programmes, that ran during 2011/12.

Nominations will be assessed against three key outcomes:

A) Impact on volunteers

B) Impact on service

C) Wider impact

 Completed nomination forms need to be returned to volunteeringaward@archives.org.uk by the end of National Volunteers Week – 7 June 2012.

 If you have any queries about the award please contact Sally Bevan, Volunteering Awards Administrator, (020 7332 3820) or via volunteeringaward@archives.org.uk
