Aloha & Welcome!

The Association’s mission is to support and provide continuing education for the state’s archivists and to encourage the preservation of and access to a wide variety of historical materials in archival repositories of Hawai‘i.

AHA upholds this mission by:

  • Coordinating annual meetings with focused programs and networking opportunities
  • Hosting educational workshops and presentations, given by local and national experts, as well as tours of archival repositories in Hawaiʻi.
  • Conducting workshops on preserving and organizing personal and institutional papers, photos, textiles and other historical material for our local community
  • Maintaining a listserv for communication and for exchanging ideas.
  • Continually updating the AHA website to keep the membership informed about organizational operations and upcoming activities; as well as providing links to archival resources and an updated directory of archival and historical repositories in the state
