Introduction to Records Management – Jon Weston Jon Weston will be discussing basic records management rationales and procedures with a primary focus on paper records. This presentation is tailored specifically to the local government environment and will introduce and answer questions about records classification and retention schedules (RCRS) as well as document destruction, document scanning, litigation risks, cost savings, and other records management and information governance fundamentals.
An Introduction to the Generally Accepted Record-Keeping (GARP) Principles – Ken Oldenburger What are the Principles of records management? Accountability, Transparency, Integrity, Protection, Compliance, Availability, Retention, and Disposition. So what does that mean? Please download and bring a free copy of the Generally Accepted Record-Keeping Principles and Maturity Model with you when you come.
Reviewing the Core Competencies – Dave Young Just as the GARP Principles can help you assess the maturity of an organization’s information governance, the Competencies provide an outline to assess the capacity of an individual records manager. Whether as an aid to hiring or to guide your own education, the Competencies provide a useful overview of the knowledge and skills required of a records manager. A copy of the Core Competencies can be downloaded using this link (No longer accessible) (ARMA Members: Free & Non-Members:$30).
