Advisory Boards

The Texas State Library and Archives Commission works with several advisory boards and committees to help meet its mission.

Texas Historical Records Advisory Board (THRAB)
The mission of the Texas Historical Records Advisory Board is to promote awareness of historically valuable records through education and training; to foster and support the identification, preservation and effective public access to these records; and to advocate and encourage collaborative funding and resource sharing. THRAB works with our Archives and Information Services division.

Records Management Interagency Coordinating Council (RMICC)
RMICC works with our State and Local Records Management division. The council reviews the activities of member agencies, studies other records management issues and makes biennial reports to the Governor and Legislature. RMICC also adopts policies that coordinate the members' records management activities and makes other improvements to the Texas records management program.
