Arlington, Virginia , Hyatt Regency Crystal City, April 23-25, 2017
In an effort to raise awareness for the crucial
role and importance of electronic records, on October 10, the National
Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) is observing
Electronic Records Day.
“It’s no surprise to public sector leaders that the increase in conducting
government business digitally has resulted in a tremendous growth in electronic
records.” said Doug Robinson, NASCIO executive director. “We all must recognize
the importance of managing and preserving records in this modern format which
promotes greater accessibility of information for the public.”
E-Records Day was created by the Council of State Archivists (CoSA) as part of
its State Electronic Records Initiative. In recognition of its fifth year, CoSA
has promoted electronic records awareness leading up to October 10 and has
placed a special focus on electronic communications in government.
Join NASCIO and CoSA in raising awareness of digital records and the importance
of their preservation among government agencies, professional organizations and
stakeholders, as well as the general public. See CoSA’s Electronic
Records Day page for more information and tips on managing e-records.
