NATIONAL ARCHIVES OF ZIMBABWE BID TO HOST ICA ANNUALCONFERENCE 2013

Zimbabwe is keen to host the ICA Annual Conference 2013 so as to:
Create a better understanding of the country and region as a budding zone for records and ar-chives management.To boost ICA membership at International and Regional levelsPromote the participation in ICA affairs by the growing regional constituency of Archival Edu-cators.
2. Geography and Timing
A Victoria Falls ICA Annual conference2013 would follow on the pioneering footsteps of  Nairobi (1976) and Cape Town (2003). An October2011 affirmation of this dream will be for  National Archives of Zimbabwe, established in 1935, a well deserved belated 75
th
birthday present.When Southern Africa hosted CITRA in 2003 ESARBICA, through its Ministers Forum,adopted the African Agenda on Archives. The statement became the basis for engagement be-tween Africa and the World on Archival matters. Following on that tradition ESARBICA andZimbabwe will ensure that ICA Annual Conference 2013 unites Africa at policy level in thearea of Electronic Records Management.An ICA Annual Conference2013 in Victoria Falls would be a direct benefit to the local com-munity of 40,000 people. The Victoria Falls area is dominated by minority groups, Tonga and Nambya, whose thriving arts and crafts industry is entirely dependent on tourist trade.Victoria Falls has one of the best safety records of any major tourist destination in the world. Itis warm and friendly and easily accessible. The ideal time to be visiting Victoria Falls runs
from March to August with the peak flow occurring between April and July It’s the start of our 
winter in the southern tropics when day temperatures range from 23

 National Archives of Zimbabwe has solid physical infrastructure and a sound professional or-ganizational structure for effective records and archives management. Its staff compliment of 
115 includes 25 Archivists. Over the years Zimbabwe’s Archivists and Records managers have
contributed their expertise to National Archives and Training Schools in the Region. Two of 
Zimbabwe’s Universities offer training in Records and Archives Management. With the coun-
try now firmly on a recovery path, an ICA Annual Conference2013 in Zimbabwe will leave behind a legacy for accelerated growth in records and archives management. The ICA AnnualConference 2013 Local Organizing Committee intends to establish a ICA Legacy Fund to sup- port human resource development in records, archives and information management in Zim- babwe.An ICA Annual Conference 2013 in Victoria Falls will give a life time opportunity to Zim-
 babwe’s growing records and archives a management constituency to interact with their global
counterparts. RAIMAZ, the local association of records and archives professionals, have en-dorsed this bid.
