The Alberta Cricket Association was formed in 1882 in order to: encourage and foster the playing of cricket, both senior and junior, in the province of Alberta; bring all the cricket clubs in Alberta in touch with one another; and, affiliate with the Western Canada Cricket Association. Every cricket club in the province of Alberta is eligible for membership in the Association, regardless of other possible affiliations. The Constitution of the Association, which outlines all of these regulations, may be amended at any Annual General Meeting if such amendment is carried by a vote of not less than two-thirds of the properly appointed representatives present at such meeting. It is provided that notice in writing of any proposed amendment shall be in the hands of the Honorary Secretary of the Association not less than thirty days prior to the date of said Annual General Meeting, and that notice of such amendments be given to each member. The Association is controlled and managed by a governing Board, and is to be governed by the rules of the Marylebone Cricket Club. The officers of the Board consist of the President, three Vice-Presidents and the Secretary-Treasurer, all of whom are elected at the Annual General Meeting. The Board has the power to appoint such Committees and Sub-Committees as it deems advisable, provided that a quorum of any such Committee or Sub-Committee is in no case less than 60% of the total membership of said Committee or Sub-Committee.

These records have come to the Provincial Archives of Alberta in a number of accessions over the years directly from the Boards of the Alberta Cricket Association and the Edmonton District Association. The accessions which are comprised of cricket memorabilia- PR1996.0609, PR1997.0393 - were donated by William Holmes, who in turn amassed these records from a variety of different donors. The materials comprising PR2010.0647 were deposited at the Provincial Archives of Alberta by Eric Mahabir on behalf of the Alberta Cricket Association on June 25, 2010.
