Records Management and Information Governance with a focus on First Nations and Local Government

Join us in Nanaimo for a one day information governance and records management conference with a focus on the needs and challenges of First Nations and local government organizations.

The morning will feature two topical and informative sessions for organizations with any level of records management program, from almost-beginning to well-developed.

The panel and discussion opportunities in the afternoon will provide an excellent forum to discuss your particular challenges, hear from others on what they’re facing and perhaps how they think you can overcome what you’re dealing with, and receive input from professionals with extensive experience in the field. This is an amazing opportunity!

Featured Sessions

Generally Accepted Recordkeeping Principles

Don’t know where to start with your information governance and records management program? The Generally Accepted Recordkeeping Principles (“The Principles”) presented by information governance veteran and high-level thinker Ken Oldenburger will show you the foundational principles of a healthy and vital program. The Principles, combined with the Maturity Model, are exceptional in that they also provide metrics for measuring health in all areas of a recordkeeping program. Ken will present a “high-level” view of The Principles, as well as touch on the metrics. You should download a copy of the Maturity Model for reference.

Organizing Shared Drives

This session by Trevor Youdale provides relevant and practical information about records management and shared drives and is of interest to anyone who would like to improve the structure, management and performance of their office share drive(s).This session is based on the content of a successful LAN Organization course developed by the BC Public Service to assist ministries with managing their shared drives in accordance with approved records schedules. The session will explore the nature of managing records on a shared drive, examples of records schedule (ARCS and ORCS) based folder structures, implementation strategies, and effective folder and document naming conventions.
