AAO East/Est

AAO East/Est is a not-for-profit, volunteer-run organization that has supported the Eastern Ontario archival community for over 30 years. The Eastern Ontario Chapter of the Archives Association of Ontario originated as the Eastern Ontario Archivists Association (EOAA) in 1978. The association provided programs and workshops for archivists and attempted to promote archives to the public through various events. In 1989, the EOAA became a chapter of the AAO's predecessor, the Ontario Association of Archivists.

Operating under a newly approved Chapter Constitution (2013), AAO East/Est continues to foster a strong archival community in eastern Ontario and to support its members and connect them to services and programs offered through its parent institution, the AAO. Each year, AAO East/Est organizes a number of events where ideas are exchanged, new and old friends connect, and the Eastern Ontario archival community is strengthened.

We will send out a vote request for trivia night dates and membership interest level, because (of course) we would like to get as many of you together as we can!
