West Texas Region – El Paso Records Management Workshop

Housing Authority, City of El Paso

The folks at the Housing Authority of the City of El Paso have kindly agreed to provide the space in their Assembly Room for a regional records management training workshop.

Some of you out in West Texas may have wondered if we even know you’re out there. With only six of us assisting all local governments and state agencies in the State of Texas with their records management questions, issues, and challenges we’re pretty busy but we haven’t forgotten you. We know you have had questions and challenges and we’re coming to help!

On October 21st and 22nd, we will be conducting a two-day records management workshop for local governments. This includes elected county officials, non-elected county offices, municipalities, and special purpose districts. If you’re uncertain if you fall into this category just contact us.

We’re going to present Introduction to Records Management and Managing Electronic Records on the first day; Emergency Preparedness and Improving Shared Drives and Filing Systems on the second day. Each day will run from 8:30 to 4:00 with lunch on your own. You have the flexibility to register for one day or both.
