ARANZ – Archives and Records Association of New Zealand

Archives and Records Association of New Zealand (ARANZ) is an incorporated society, established in 1976, with the aim of promoting the understanding and importance of records and archives in New Zealand. ARANZ is administered nationally by a Council of elected members. 

NZMS are long supporters of ARANZ and have attended all annual conferences since 2002. Andy Fenton further contributed as a member of the Council from 2005 to 2010, and represented ARANZ members’ interests in the development of New Zealand’s first Digitisation Standard (published in Jan 2007 as part of Archives NZ’s Continuum series, later to become ISO 13028) as a member of Standards NZ’s International Review Group IT-021 (part of ISO TC46 – SC11, administered by Archives NZ).

Today we continue to enjoy the advocacy ARANZ undertake on behalf of the profession and their quality publications representing issues impacting archivists, records and information management professionals.

Alison, Sheryl and Martin spent a few inspiring days in Rotorua in August at the annual ARANZ Conference amongst a full complement of 120 Archivists.  For all three of them, the opportunity to meet with old friends and make new ones was as engrossing as the focused theme of Māori Archives and Records.
