FRON Celebrates 10 years

At last week’s BRIDG Meeting, we made an announcement to mark the 10th anniversary of the Federal Records Officer Network. We congratulate them on this milestone and wish them continued success. Their leadership has asked that we share this blog post.

The following is a guest post from the leaders of the Federal Records Officer Network.

Established in 2013, the Federal Records Officers Network (FRON) is a network of records and information management (RIM) professionals that address records issues that exist across Federal agencies.

  • We share experiences and guidance documents, leverage best practices, and discuss how to effectively handle common records-related challenges.
  • We host monthly meetings (2nd Tuesday of the month) which include collaborative discussions, panel interviews, and agency presentations about hot topics.
  • All members have input on scheduling and priority of topics, like electronic records management, email management, records and information management training, records management requirements for electronic systems, and policy development.

FRON Membership is open to all Federal Records Officers and those actively involved in the advancement of records and information management, in any size agency or branch of the Federal government, regardless of geographic location.

To join the FRON, please create an account on the All Partners Access Network at and submit a request to be added to the FRON.
