The Society of Florida Archivists is an organization of individuals and institutions who share a concern for the identification, preservation, and use of records of historical value. The Society is dedicated to the dissemination of information about such records and about sound archival methodology.

Society membership is drawn from colleges and universities,state and local government, libraries, religious institutions, museums, and historical societies. Members work with a wide range of materials and formats comprising myriad subject areas.  

The goals of the Society are pursued in three broad areas: meetings and workshops, publications, and education. Member benefits include:

Archives Month Florida: Gaylord Workshops
  • Annual Meeting of the Society, where members gather to exchange information, stay up-to-date with changes in the archival profession, renew acquaintances, and visit local repositories.
  • Training Opportunities, often presented in the form of preconference workshops. Led by experts from all over the country - in recent years, many have been sponsored by the Society of American Archivists - these sessions provide a unique opportunity to study new archival practices and technologies as well as to strengthen present skills.
  • The Florida Archivist, the quarterly publication of the Society. The newsletter highlights important accessions, forthcoming meetings and workshops, recent publications, reports on SFA activities, and includes articles concerning archival practice, theory,  and preservation.
  • SFA Members Listserv, provides a forum for news and announcements, questions concerning archival issues, and the discussion of pertinent topics.
