BARM Society to be launched 4 september 2008!

On September 4, the first meeting of the Steering Committee will take place, with invited guests, in order to launch the Bangladesh Archives & and Records Management Society. This is a result of the meeting of 26 july 2008 in Kuala Lumpur during the ICA Congress. Delegates of Bangladesh took the initiative in order to give the archival development of Bangladesh a boost. Mohammad Elias Miah, Muhammad Lutful Haq, Mohammad Mahbubur Rahman, Fazle Mir Ahmed Chowdhury, Sharifudin Ahmed, together with BARM coordinator Florus Geraedts, while participating in the ICA congress Archives, Governance and Development: mapping the future society, found that establishment of an Archival movement in Bangladesh is vital in order to work on archival development of Bangladesh. An association of persons in Bangladesh can bring the archives as crucial tool for efficient administration under the government’s attention. Furthermore, this organisation will help create awareness in the society about the importance of archives for developing  knowledge management and creating citizenship. Last but not least this society should point the general public’s attention to the threathning loss of the archival heritage of Bangladesh and East Bengal, revealing the neglected archives and presenting suggestions and plans for rescuing archives, on national and local level.                   
The Bangladesh Archives and Record Management Society will have its office in the Arts Building, University of Dhaka, C/o Room No.1084, Ramna, Dhaka 1000
