MEMORANDUM TO FEDERAL AGENCY RECORDS OFFICERS: Electronic Records Scheduling Workshops
The National Archives and Records Administration will be holding four free workshops to offer assistance to agencies and their contractors in developing effective records schedules for their existing electronic records (e.g., databases, scanned images, and other electronic records). The workshops will be offered on April 6 and 7 and on May 11 and 12 at the National Archives building in Washington, D.C.
Each of the one-day workshops will include (1) a morning session of practical tips and guidance presented by NARA staff, (2) an afternoon session of Q&A to provide attendees with an opportunity to ask specific questions about developing electronic records schedules, and (3) breakout sessions to offer agencies an opportunity to meet with their appraiser to review agency system inventories, schedule agency visits, and ask questions that are agency-specific.
We encourage you to take advantage of this unique opportunity to get valuable advice that will help you meet your electronic records scheduling goals. Registration information follows; however, due to the limited seating capacity in the available rooms, we request that each agency limit their registrations to no more than three attendees.
