~ Building a Community to Manage Change ~
Provincial Departments, Municipalities, Schoolboards, Hospitals and the like are very unique when it comes to Canada's landscape of the Public Sector. Working groups and knowledgable colleages are helpful but by and large, these organizations can seemingly be an island, all by itself, in the middle of a very large ocean. And eventhough being so close to the stakeholders one serves can be very rewarding, the challenges presented can seem like crossing a vast ocean in a row boat!
This two-day event is dedicated to building a community of professionals that learn from one another and share ideas & resources. The stakes are rising and the need for this community to bind together is crucial. Join us in late June as we simply support one another as we wade through the realities and expectations of managing records in a public body subject to the various pieces of Access to Information and Privacy legislation in the Maritime Provinces.
~ Who is this event for? ~
Does this sound like you?
- You are a records manager who has been asked by your CAO to “do something about” electronic records and email
- You are a municipality required to manage records properly, and you know that this clause extends to electronic records
- You are an FOI coordinator who cannot respond to a request because your organization can’t find the relevant electronic records
- You are an IT professional and are being asked to come up with a solution for managing e-documents
- Communications just announced a new Open Data initiative without consulting RM, FOI or Privacy
...if so, you are not alone.
~ 2017 Features a Different Format ~
The Support Forum offers participants a unique way to shape their learning to meet their individual needs. Presented over the course of 2 days, the Support Forum is made up of a morning of dynamic keynotes sessions, followed by 3 half-days of workshops.
