e-Records Conference 2017: Call for Presentations

This event promotes improved electronic records management in Texas government by bringing together staff responsible for and interested in records management and information technology. Texas technology managers and records managers are working together in new and exciting ways.  From governance initiatives to cloud, here is an opportunity to share your best practices, challenges and lessons learned to help other Texas agencies and local governments.

We are now accepting presentation proposals from state government organizations (state agencies, universities or local governments), vendors and subject matter experts from various organizations to share both their challenges and successes with managing electronic records.

This event is organized by the Texas State Library and Archives Commission (TSLAC) and co-sponsored by the Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR). Visit the conference website for more details.

Presentation formats could include 1-2 presenters or 3-4 panelists for 75-minute sessions.  Case studies: e-Records and e-Government–solutions, best practices, and lessons learned from projects with other internal or external experts including IRMs, RMOs, vendors, etc.  Co-presenters, for example, may be state government and vendors who collaborated on relevant projects.

Topic areas suggested include:
