Archives – Preserving our History

Members volunteer for the Archives Committee, which catalogues and stores the Association’s archival material. Branches are requested to send Minute Books and other branch history items to the committee for safe keeping. We also have an ongoing oral history project,  which has been assisted by grant funding from Lotterywest. Archives may be accessed by contacting the Association’s staff, in the first instance.

Archives next major project is to scan all back-copies of the state magazine, so they are available in digital format. This process will both preserve a valuable historical resource for members, and make it easily available to scholars and other researchers.
