Additionally, prior to the BRIDG meeting, Agency Services hosts a Coffee Hour and Networking Session for Federal agencies to meet with NARA staff from the Federal Records Centers Program, RM Training Program, Research Services, and the Appraisal teams to share knowledge about RM best practices and learn more about the various NARA services available to agency customers.
