The Conference of Inter-Mountain Archivists (CIMA) is an association of archivists, conservators, historians, and other archives professionals in the Inter-mountain West. Its membership is open to all, and institutions in Utah, Nevada, Arizona, Idaho, and New Mexico are well represented.


CIMA was founded on September 7, 1973 at the McCune Mansion in Salt Lake City, Utah. Originally incorporated at the Conference of Intermountain Archivists (CIA), the organization adjusted its name and acronym at its annual meeting in 1984. The archival records of the organization are held by the Utah State Historical Society.

CIMA programs are an important element in developing the archival profession in the Inter-mountain region. But, they are very expensive, and your support is requested. A donation to CIMA is a contribution to a rich legacy and tradition within the archival profession. Donations may be made in any amount.
