Registration Underway for State Archives’ Records Retention Workshop

Registration is underway for the Wyoming Archives Day annual workshop on electronic records management scheduled October 7, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The workshop is held in observation of Archives Month and will take place at the Cheyenne Business Center, 1510 East Pershing Blvd., in Cheyenne.

The workshop, offered in partnership with the Wyoming State Archives, the Wyoming Chapter of ARMA and the Wyoming State Historic Records Advisory Board, features Geoffry A. Huth, manager of the New York State Archives’ Records Service Development Unit. Huth’s duties include overseeing retention scheduling and the development of records management workshops, publications and web-based resources for state and local Government.

His primary focus is to develop new services in electronic records management including documenting eGovernment transactions, preserving electronic records and identifying records in geographic information systems. He is a highly respected presenter in the management and archival of historic records and the records and information management (RIM) environments, with special emphasis on electronic records.

For this Archives Day Workshop, Huth will focus on important information and address the challenges and processes that archivists, It professionals, and records managers must use daily in order to create, use, capture, and maintain electronic records for operational, historic archival, and legal compliance of their everyday business operations.

Registration fee for this all day workshop is only $20 per attendee, which includes handouts, breaks, catered lunch, beverages, and an afternoon ice cream social. All attendees must pre-register and registration will close Sept. 26.
