We have just announced the schedule for our Bi-monthly Records and Information Discussion Group (BRIDG) meetings for Fiscal Year 2014.
All meetings will be held in the McGowan Theater at the National Archives building in downtown Washington, DC. These meetings are designed for us to share information with our agency customers and stakeholders about what is happening here in the Office of the Chief Records Officer, the Federal Records Center Program, Research Services, and other parts of Agency Services.
In FY 2014,we will continue to webcast the BRIDG meetings. In addition, video recordings and briefing slides will be available to agencies after the meeting on our website. Following each meeting, one of our Appraisal Teams will host a meet and greet session for agency records management staff. Additionally, prior to the meeting, we will host a coffee hour and networking session for Federal agencies to meet with NARA staff from the Federal Records Centers Program, RM Training Program, Research Services, and the Appraisal teams.
