    A membership renewal letter has been sent to all of our current members.  This is the first year that we are sending renewals online and earlier than usual.  The SFA membership is based on the calendar year, January 1 to December 31.  We hope all of our members renew in a timely fashion.  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to me or our membership chair, Mary Flekke.

    Thank you for your continued support.

    Wild Apricot ( is online membership management software primarily used by smaller professional associations, non-profits and clubs. In recent years many state and regional archives, library and museum associations have adopted Wild Apricot as their member management tool. When the SFA Board began to explore member management options in 2010, we quickly received several recommendations from archival associations around the country that were very pleased with Wild Apricot. After a trial period in which Board members tested the software, the Board voted to purchase and implement the software. Over the past two months, we have been configuring settings, loading member information and editing content. We are launching the site in August 2011.

    So, what can does this mean to you? All members are able to log in to SFA's secure Wild Apricot site and edit your profile and contact information. You can search the membership directory online and connect with other members more easily. The membership application and renewal process is partially automated for the first time in SFA’s history. The Board can distribute important news and announcements via email blasts to all members. And, in addition to these basic membership management functions, Wild Apricot is very much a social networking tool. We can create discussion forums, maintain blogs and photo albums, and manage event announcements and registration.
