Workshop - Records Management for Nonprofits

Date: Tuesday, October 21, 2008
Time: 9:00 AM - noon
Place: Capital District Library Council
Cost: $5
Presenter: C. Raymond LaFever, NYS Archives

Managing records in your not-for-profit organization can appear to be something that takes you away from your core mission, but well managed records actually can help you better carry out your organization's goals. (Note: This workshop is about dealing with your organization's OWN records (e.g. annual reports, membership correspondence, personnel records, event flyers, board meeting minutes), not historical records collected BY your organization.)

This presentation will include:
-What are records?
-Why do they need to be managed?
-Setting up a good filing system.
-Identifying which copy is the copy of record.
-Knowing when to retire your records.
-When and how to destroy records you know longer need.
-How to manage and preserve your historical records.
