On Friday, January 31, 2020, attendees will have the opportunity to hear from government records management professionals from all levels of government as they discuss significant projects which are transforming approaches to records and information management. The highlight of the day will be a panel discussion with three significant leaders in the field as they discuss challenges around emerging technologies, digitization, the management of electronic records, and increasing public expectations. Additional sessions include an update on NARA's FERMI project and how GSA is enabling more efficient purchasing of technology solutions and how state and local governments can leverage this work.
