MARAC Supports New DC Archives

On behalf of the DC Caucus, the Steering Committee of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Archives Conference (MARAC) submitted a letter to the DC Government Operations Committee to advocate for a new, state-of-the-art Archives; significantly more staff and upgraded facilities for the current Archives; and comprehensive records management for the DC Government.

MARAC joins in supporting the Bowser Administration’s commitment to a modern, state-of-the-art District Archives and to move the Archives to a new facility at the University of the District of Columbia (UDC).  You may view the letter in its entirety at Letter to DC Government Operations Committee.pdf
