Joining PARBICA

Membership

Membership of PARBICA entitles the member to a host of privileges and opportunities.

Membership provides access to a network of people in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands who are interested in archives, records and information management. It also invites you to regular regional conferences and training workshops and a subscription to PARBICA's newsletter, Panorama.

Membership is available to both organisations and individuals as outlined in the fees schedule below.

If you are ready to join PARBICA, please access our Membership Application Form and forward the completed form to the Treasurer. An invoice will be forwarded to you for payment of the first year's membership dues on receipt of your application.

Should you have any enquiries about PARBICA membership, please contact the Secretary-General.

The PARBICA membership categories are based upon those of the International Council on Archives (ICA) and are applicable to members residing in the Pacific region only.

Organisations or individuals that join PARBICA are encouraged to also join the ICA and we offer members the option of combining both PARBICA and ICA membership invoices onto the one annual invoice.
