Reminder: Regional workshops on Managing Public Records in May and June

This post is a reminder that the Local Records Unit of the State Archives of North Carolina is offering a series of free 3-hour workshops on managing public records in a variety of locations across the state from mid-May to mid-June.  Our first set of workshops, offered mostly during the month of March, was very successful, and we’d like to extend that success to other parts of the state.

Topics discussed will include public records law, records management principles, using the records retention and disposition schedule, electronic records (including scanning and email), and disaster preparedness.  If you were considering signing up during the initial announcement but haven’t done so yet, please sign up now.  Please also link this announcement to anyone who might be interested in attending.   If you are a state employee interested in attending a public records workshop, please contact your agency’s records management analyst for information on state agency workshops.

All workshops will be held from 1-4 and, again, are free of charge to local government employees and officials. These workshops have also been approved for 3 hours of continuing education for registers of deeds and tax administrators.  Below is a list of the dates and locations of the workshops.
