Archives & Records Association

Prioryfield House, 20 Canon Street
Taunton TA1 1SW

On 1 June 2010 the Archives and Records Association (ARA) was officially formed as a result of a merger of the National Council on Archives; the Association of Chief Archivists in Local Government (ACALG) and the society of Archivists (SoA). With the creation of ARA, the National Council on Archives ceased to operate as an independent group. Ongoing NCA activities are now continued by the new organisation, further information about which can be found at The website of the National Council on Archives continues to serve as a resource for professional literature.
