Agency Stakeholder Sessions about the Presidential Memorandum

At our December Agency Services Bi-monthly Records and Information Discussion Group (BRIDG) meetings, we announced that we would hold an agency stakeholder session as required by the Presidential Memorandum – Managing Government Records. Now we have more information about those sessions. This same information is being sent to our records management contacts in agencies as AC Memo 06.2012.

Senior Agency Officials (as previously designated to NARA) and Records Officers are being invited to a two-hour event which will take place on February 8, 2012, at our Archives I building on Pennsylvania Avenue. We will offer a morning session and an afternoon session. The deadline for registration is Wednesday, February 1, 2012.

These sessions will discuss agency responsibilities pursuant to the Presidential Memorandum. Following the briefing, agency representatives will meet and mingle, discuss and debate, and take part in activities based on real-life examples of information agencies are considering for inclusion in the required reports under sections 2(b)(2) and 2(b)(3) (see NARA memorandum AC 03-2012).

For more information about what we are requesting agencies do to participate in these sessions and how to register for one, please refer to AC 06.2012.

We will continue to use our blog to keep everyone informed about our progress as we work to complete the reports required by the Presidential Memorandum.
