Student chapters introduce and integrate new archivists into the profession and enhance formal education by providing a forum for discussion and professional activities. Chapters provide an opportunity to meet and interact with colleagues within the professional community.
Student chapters may organize events, tours, and speakers relating to archives, as well presenting and organizing sessions at AMIA’s annual conference. Chapters are facilitated, supported, and overseen by AMIA’s Education Committee
