This virtual workshop will be hosted by the Society’s government records staff, Andrew Baraniak and Abbie Norderhaug, with Hannah Wang of the Educopia Institute. The workshop is intended to give local government officials the opportunity to learn about their legal responsibilities and basic records management of public records.
The workshop will be split into two sessions. The first session will cover topics that will help attendees become familiar with public records rules and laws, give an overview of basic records management, provide best practices on handling obsolete records, and discuss the Wisconsin Municipal Records Schedule.
The second session will focus specifically on electronic records management and provide helpful information regarding identifying common types of electronic records and how best to manage these records. This session will also educate attendees on tools that can help them manage and maintain records for their required retention period.
Please note that the September 24 and October 22, 2020 events are the same workshop offered on different days for your convenience.
Included: Print resources and a print copy of the Wisconsin Municipal Manual that will be mailed to attendees.
