The 2017 e-Records conference delivered on all fronts hosting a variety of vendors, local government and state agency representatives and, of course, plenty of staff from the two hosting state agencies: Department of Information Resources (DIR) and Texas State Library and Archives Commission (TSLAC).
After a word from each of the hosting agencies executive directors, Mark Smith and Stacey Napier, the presentations kicked off with learning often happening simultaneously in two conference rooms thanks to numerous breakout sessions throughout the day.
Given the topic of the conference, many of the presentations centered around information governance and implementation whether in the cloud, SharePoint, or through successful case studies.
Attendees were also treated to an invigorating– no really– overview of the public information act and recent changes to the law courtesy of the 85th legislative session.
Back by popular demand was Mark Myers along with Brian Thomas to discuss the Texas Digital Archive (TDA) and the eventual accession of state agency electronic records.
All in all, the conference was a huge success with registration meeting capacity several weeks before the event and we look forward to using the excitement and momentum to plan e-records 2018.
Keep an eye out for session recaps of the entire conference on this blog in the coming weeks.
