2019 Winter Regional Forum

Sponsored by FreeDoc, NAGARA brings training closer to home with this one-day Regional Forum dedicated to improving the skills & talents of the government archives & records administration community.

Date & Time: Friday, January 25, 2019 | 8:00AM - 4:30PM EST

Themes: Records Management | Disaster Recovery | E-mail Management | Contracting | Litigation and e-Discovery

Overview: We live in a digital world, yet many of us still struggle with using traditional paper based processes while trying to play "catch-up" with ever changing technology - and the piles just get bigger every day! NAGARA's 2019 Winter Regional Forum, sponsored by FreeDoc, will offer attendees opportunities to learn from government agencies who have finally stopped talking about the problems and started taking action to solve them. These agencies are actively creating a framework for information governance (IG), applying the tried and true principles of records management, and leveraging enterprise content management (ECM) technology to automate business processes AND manage and protect their public records and information to boot. In other words, having their cake and compliance too!
