Greatest Hits Webinar: Records Retention 101 for Local Governments

night-office-shirt-mail-largeIf you’re a newcomer to records management, you might be asking yourself some of the most basic questions a Records Management Officer faces like “What is a record?” and “Can I really destroy this?” Coming up on September 29, we’ll be running a webinar just for you called Records Retention 101!

This webinar event will be a live rerun of one of our most popular webinars. We will be going over TSLAC standards for local government personnel who want to understand the basic rules and processes of record retention and management. We will tackle how to read records retention schedules and methods for finding series within the schedules, as well as an overview of what might be expected of you as a records management professional.


Some of topics of discussions will include:

  • Records Retention Terminology – There are a lot of phrases and codes thrown at you as you’re starting out like “retention schedule” or “AV+5” – we’re going to make sure you understand what they all mean so you can confidently interpret them later.
  • Rules of Retention – Have you ever wondered who makes all these rules? How do you interpret them and make them work for your office? We’ll talk all about this and give you examples of how to navigate retention schedules.
  • The 12 Local Schedules published by TSLAC – Learn which schedules you should follow and what to do when you have a record that you can’t find on the schedules.
  • Audience Q&A – Have a burning question about records retention? Bring it to the webinar!

This webinar is designed with newcomers in mind, but all are welcome to attend and participate.

  1. Have attended several trainings at Austin and one in Corpus Christi. Very informative. Would like to get new notifications of new postings. If any changes in retention time.

  2. Can we get continuing education credits for this to use as part of the District Clerks’ requirements each year?
