Igniting a Passion for Archival and Records Excellence

Embark on a journey with SASA

At SASA, we transcend the ordinary, beckoning archivists, history enthusiasts, and literary connoisseurs to join us on a journey through the corridors of time. Welcome to a space where passion meets purpose, where the art of preserving history becomes a symphony of innovation and collaboration.

In the heart of South Africa, SASA stands tall as the vanguard of Archives, Records, and Information Management (ARIM). Picture a vibrant tapestry of minds weaving together research, knowledge, and the essence of historical writings. SASA isn’t just an association; it’s a dynamic community poised at the intersection of tradition and the fourth Industrial Revolution.

I would like to extend my heartfelt endorsement to the South African Society of Archivists for their
exceptional work in promoting scholarship and professional advancement within the field of records management and archival science. I also encourage all professionals in

SASA’s revamped website is a refreshing testimony of its relentless efforts to serve as the professional mouthpiece of South Africa’s archivists and records managers. This website also addresses an obvious void characterized by the worrying absence of African heritage entities on the world wide web.

Since everything is an archive to me, SASA’s advocacy for curation of archives to keep memory alive is something supremely important not just to me but to the ARM fraternity at large.
