Since 1982, Chicago Area Archivists (CAA) has provided opportunities for local archivists, historians, librarians and others in the Chicago metro area to meet together for discussion, social interaction, and education. Our membership include archivists, librarians, and records managers in academic, corporate, governmental, institutional, library, and museum settings.


  • to share information on issues of interest to the local archival community
  • to advocate for preservation of and access to historically valuable resources related to the Chicago area
  • to keep members informed about archival programs and resources


We fulfill these goals through meetings, programs, tours of members' repositories, annual parties, and other activities. Activities are planned by a volunteer steering committee and two subcommittees. Read our bylaws and minutes from our steering committee meetings.
