e-Records 2021 Call for Presentations

The annual e-Records conference is online again this year! The conference is the afternoon of Wednesday, November 17 and the morning of Thursday, November 18. Our theme is Accelerating Towards the Texas of Tomorrow.

This event is organized by the Texas State Library and Archives Commission (TSLAC) and co-sponsored with the Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR) to promote electronic records management in Texas government. The conference gathers records management and information technology staff from the state and local level together to learn from each other by sharing case studies, solutions, best practices, challenges, and lessons learned.

We are now accepting proposals from state government organizations (state agencies, universities), local governments, vendors, and subject matter experts from various organizations. TSLAC and DIR are looking for learner-focused presentations designed to engage virtual audiences. Prior experience presenting online is not required.
