The Archives Society of Alberta is pleased to announce that it has received an additional $60,000 from the Alberta Historical Resources Foundation for 2003-2004. The increase stems from a joint initiative two years ago with the Historical Society of Alberta, Museums Alberta, Alberta Genealogical Society and the Archaelogical Society of Alberta that presented the need for increased funding in the heritage sector to the
Minister of Community Development, the Honourable Gene Zwozdesky. The
increased funds will be directed at grants programs, primarily the popular
Access to Holdings program.
We encourage members to send letters of thanks (copied to ASA, if possible) to your local MLA as well as the Minister of Community Development:
Hon. Gene Zwozdesky

The ASA thanks Alberta Community Development and the Alberta Historical Resources Foundation for its continued support of Alberta's archival community.
