MEMORANDUM TO FEDERAL AGENCY RECORDS OFFICERS: Records Management for Multi-Agency Collaborations
The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) and MAX Federal Community are hosting a workshop to discuss the challenges of managing records in a multi-agency collaborative environment. The workshop agenda includes case study presentations focusing on specific collaborative platforms and a discussion among attendees to identify challenges and best practices.
The event will be held in the Jefferson conference room at the National Archives Building in Washington, DC (700 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW) on Wednesday, November 17, 2010 from 8:30 AM to 12:00 PM EST. There will also be a web conference available for participants who cannot attend in person.
Space is limited to the first 40 participants, with an additional 75 lines available to join via web conference. All participants, both in person and via the web conference, must be registered (see instructions below). In order to allow more agencies to join in-person, please limit participation to 2-3 individuals per agency, to include both records and web management staff, and we encourage attendance by those actively engaged in cross-agency collaboration.
To reserve a place for the meeting in person or via the web please register at https://max.omb.gov/community/x/4gu9I. A MAX User ID is required to register for the event. If you do not have a MAX User ID, you can register at https://max.omb.gov/community/x/4gu9I.
