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.

TSLAC and DIR are looking for learner-focused presentations that build core skills or share practical knowledge and experience related to the conference theme.

About e-Records 2024

The Next Records Frontier is the theme of this year’s conference. Texas’ population continues to grow and with it comes increased demands for efficient, streamlined, and digital government. Texans expect their government experience to be consistent, regardless of whether the transaction is online, on a mobile device, or in person. To best serve Texans where they are, government needs to emphasize accessibility, transform talent and processes, and leverage data in secure, accountable, transparent, and ethical ways without bias. This conference is your opportunity to learn from your colleagues and other records, data, and information technology professionals forging ahead with controls, guardrails, and frameworks to responsibly manage government information residing in current and frontier technologies.
