SPRA Society

The South Peace Regional Archives Society was formed in 2007 to operate the Archives and its work to gather, preserve and share the records of Alberta’s South Peace Region. Members meet every year at the Annual General Meeting to discuss bylaws, reports, and strategic plans for the Archives and Society.

Members who have been voted on to the board of directors meet four times a year to oversee the operations of the archives.
