AMA Special Interest Groups
Rural and Northern Archives Manitoba (RNAM) is a special interest group of the Association for Manitoba Archives. Founded in 2006, RNAM meets twice a year, usually in the spring and fall; meetings are hosted by RNAM members on a rotating basis.
RNAM’s goals and objectives are to:
- participation in the AMA’s annual general meeting
- submission of articles with a focus on RNAM member activities and concerns to the AMA website
- development of special projects of interest to rural and northern archives in Manitoba
- training opportunities
- continued communication with the AMA Board
The nature of RNAM has varied since its inception. In the past, it was an informal group gathered to share information and brainstorm, as well as to learn from informational presentations. It still functions largely the same way, but is flexible enough in its operation to test other methods of meeting its goals.
