ARMA 2009 FedDay: Collaborating Across Boundaries: Government Records and Social Media

Friday, October 16, 2009

New legislation and increased media publicity have raised the profile of records management in Federal agencies, particularly with regard to the legal responsibilities related to managing e-mail, web content and the new social media technologies. The Federal Government Day 2009 program will focus on these changes in the recordkeeping environment with presentations by NARA senior managers discussing related records management policies and strategies.
