Public Records Law: Records Retention (Webinar On-Demand)
Do you know which records you can destroy and which ones you are required to keep? How transparent would government be if there were no rules about records retention? Public agencies in North Carolina are required to keep certain records and may destroy others. The State Office of Archives and History (within the Department of Cultural Resources) makes the records retention rules and provides resources and training on how to comply with them. Representatives from the State Government Records Branch will join School of Government faculty members for this webinar focused specifically on the records retention requirements for local governments in North Carolina. This webinar will be of particular interest to city and county clerks, and information technology professionals.
Specific topics will include:
- State Archives legal role and resources for local government
- Legal requirements for compliance with record retention schedules
- Best practices for storing and preserving records
- Retention and management of electronic records, including location, metadata, geographic information systems (“GIS”), personal data devices, social media and other websites
- The role of the IT department in the records retention process
