The event will consist of two sessions:
The Do-Re-Mi of Records Management
Amy Judd, VITA
Through the mysteries of your workplace, you've become a records officer. Congratulations! Let's start at the very beginning. A very good place to start. Rather than do-re-mi, let's start with records series, retention schedules, and records destruction. Please email any questions you have or topics you’d like to see covered to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Inheriting a H.O.T. Records Mess
Glenn Smith, Library of Virginia
So you’re the new kid on the block, you’ve drawn the short straw, or there just weren’t enough challenges in your life and you signed up to wrangle that Hugely Overgrown and Traumatic records mess that’s been a part of your office or agency for a very long time. It looks daunting, if not impossible. No one’s cared about the records, but there has been (or soon will be) an event that’s triggered the panic at the top and the need to manage the mess. Where do you start? How do you change thought and work processes? How do you overcome “this is the way we’ve always done it?” Let’s talk!
