Every local government entity in Texas must be in compliance with the requirements in the Local Government Records Act. This means having a policy or ordinance approved by the governing body and on file with TSLAC, designating a records management officer, and choosing to either declare adoption of the TSLAC Local Retention Schedules or use an approved custom retention schedule. In this webinar, we'll tell you how to get into compliance quickly so that your office can adhere to the laws and manage records effectively.

An inventory is a crucial component of any records management program. However, inventories can be very complex and overwhelming projects, especially when it comes to electronic records. In this webinar, intended for both local governments and state agencies, we will guide you through the process of planning and conducting an inventory that encompasses both paper and electronic records. We will share tips about how to get buy-in from upper management as well as your colleagues, and how to make the inventory go as smoothly as possible. Finally, we will look at ways that you can use the information you gathered - whether by creating a retention schedule or by identifying records that are eligible for destruction.
