The Canadian Council of Archives, Association pour l’avancement des sciences et des techniques de la documentation (ASTED), the Canadian Library Association and the Canadian Museums Association invite you to participate in a national summit on the future of human resources in the heritage sector.    The objective of this meeting is to review the report commissioned on succession planning and future HR requirements for museums, libraries and archives in Canada, and to make recommendations for an action plan that will be implemented by the four national associations.

This is an action-oriented meeting which is critical to our future planning.   We need your input to formulate recommendations and an action plan focusing on succession planning issues and future human resource management issues for the archives, library and museum sectors.

A copy of the draft report on Succession Planning and HR Issues is available for review in advance by clicking here.  This report was prepared based on extensive surveys by 8Rs, an Alberta-based consulting firm, and was commissioned by the national heritage associations who gratefully acknowledge the financial support from the Department of Canadian Heritage for this project.

The meeting will be held in both official languages.  Participants are encouraged to speak in the official language of their choice. 

Registration is $45 +taxes (to cover the costs of lunch and health breaks).  Advance registration is required by March 19th.  Please register by contacting Nathalie Lavigne at 613-565-1222, extension 111 or nlavigne@archivescanada.ca.  Payment for the registration fee will be accepted on-site at the door.  Please make cheques payable to the Canadian Council of Archives.
