Individual Membership

Individual membership is open to any Saskatchewan resident who supports the objectives of the SCAA and who is engaged in archival work. Individual members in good standing have the right to vote during meetings and to hold office in the Council. Note that each institutional member designates one person to be its representative for the entire year; that person has the right to vote during meeting and to hold office in the Council, and therefore is not eligible to hold a separate individual membership.

Individual general membership is open to any individual, through the payment of membership dues, to support the objectives of the SCAA. General members may not vote at meetings or hold office. General members are not eligible for funding from any grant programs administered or adjudicated by the SCAA.
