The 2020 Call for Applications for the International Council on Archives (ICA) New
Professionals Programme is open.
Anyone with less than 5 years experience is encouraged to apply, including current students of archival or recordkeeping programmes.
The New Professionals Programme represents an incredible opportunity for new professionals and students from across the world to be introduced to leaders in the archival field, receive a mentor to help guide their career development, develop and implement a group project that will foster and support the global new professional community, receive a conference buddy, and be supported to attend and present alongside their fellow new professionals at the ICA Abu Dhabi Congress.
“Presenting at an international conference, learning so much from the others in my
cohort, being supported by the ICA and the many generous and kind individuals
within it, and forging a relationship with my mentor has been a wonderful experience. It’s such a great way to expand your horizons and be gently pushed outside your comfort zone, knowing that there’s someone to help you along the way” Anne-Flore Laloë,
2019 Active New Professional.
They are looking for future leaders in the archival and recordkeeping profession to join the New Professionals Programme. They encourage potential applicants – archival and recordkeeping students, and anyone who started working in the profession in 2015 or
later – to apply for the New Professionals Programme, and those who may know potential applicants to encourage and support their applications.
The deadline for applications is 30 June 2020.
