State Agency Workshops

Training is available to all state government employees interested in learning more about records management (including the Public Records Law and how to create or update an office’s retention schedule); electronic, paper, and subject filing systems; handling e-mail; and handling electronic records.

Our March, 2018 state agency workshops will focus on public records management, specifically how it relates to the new Functional Schedules for State Agencies. Even if you have taken our Introduction to Managing Public Records workshop in the past, we highly recommend you attend this revised workshop to learn more about the functional schedules and how they affect the records in your agency.

All state agency workshops will be held at the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources, 109 E. Jones Street, Raleigh, NC in the second floor classroom (room #208). There is no charge for this training.

Managing Public Records in State Agencies using Functional Schedules

This workshop will answer questions such as “What is records management?” and will discuss the development and usage of the new Functional Schedules for State Agencies. This workshop will also provide an introduction to public records law and public access and explain the services provided to state agencies by the State Records Center.
