AMMs are a wonderful opportunity to network with colleagues from across the sector in Scotland and beyond. You will be able to hear directly from our Chair, Trustees and those responsible for delivering our vision of leading Scotland’s archives and records management community to inform and inspire the nation.

The AMM immediately follows on from the launch of A Collecting Policy Framework for Scotland’s Archives and a half-day event featuring varied talks on topics including crowdfunding to open up collections, crisis management for business archives and collecting within the context of university, local authority and national collections. More details on this event can be found here.  Lunch will be provided at the end of the meeting.
