For those who may be interested in forming a Chicago-area study group for the 2016 Certified Archivist exam, CAA has created a sign up sheet for members to connect with each other. Sign up here.
Please note that Chicago is already selected as one of the exam sites for 2016. Some interest has been expressed in petitioning the ACA to offer another exam location in the Chicago area, outside of the city - if this is something you're interested in, please indicate this preference on the study group sign up sheet.
Also, the ACA is offering an early-bird discount for those who register prior to February 15. Please see below for more details:
News from the Academy of Certified Archivists
The Academy of Certified Archivists (ACA) is making the certification exam more affordable by offering a reduced application fee as part of an early bird special!
Register for the exam before February 15 and receive half-off regular registration. The rate increases to the standard fee of $50 after February 15.
The early bird deadline also lowers the threshold for selecting pick-your-site locations! Instead of requiring 5 test takers per site, the ACA will only require 3 during the early bird period. This change makes it easier for many candidates to have an exam site in a more convenient and affordable location. But, like the test application fee, the required number of test participants will increase to the standard number of 5 after the early bird period ends.
This year's Certified Archivist exam will be held August 3rd. The predetermined locations are: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, and Seattle.
