Fall is in the air up here in the mountains and I have been lucky enough to see some great foliage while travelling out to Ashe County and Hendersonville to conduct Managing Public Records Workshops this month. Both workshops were well attended, with the attendees asking some great questions and sharing their own records management experiences. I would also like to thank the City of Asheville for inviting me to participate in their Open Data Day [http://opendataday.com/]. It was exciting to see all of the ongoing efforts, both in North Carolina and from around the country, to make government records even more accessible and useful to the public.
I would also like to give a quick reminder that I still have two upcoming MPR workshops scheduled in November. The November 14th, Asheville workshop located here at the Western Office has just a few seats remaining, however there is plenty of room remaining for the Waxhaw workshop which will be held on November 7. If you are in the metro Charlotte area, the Waxhaw workshop offers a convenient location for most folks in your region. Both workshops will be held from 1:00 to 4:00. If you would like a registration form or would like to contact me to schedule a workshop or consultation anywhere else in Western North Carolina, you can reach me by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (828) 296-7230 ext. 224.
