The Society of Southwest Archivists is a professional organization established to:

stimulate and make available research in archival administration and records management

promote sound principles and standards for preserving and administering records

foster opportunities for education and training of archivists, records managers, and custodians of private papers, and

strengthen relations with others in allied disciplines and with organizations and institutions having mutual interests in the preservation and use of our recorded heritage.

SSA serves over 500 archivists, special collections librarians, preservationists, conservators, records managers, and others interested in the preservation of our documentary heritage. The six states in our region are Arizona, Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Texas, but our members come from almost every state and several countries. We look forward to working with you to improve and promote the archival profession.
