What is a record? Why do I need naming conventions? What is the difference between unstructured and structured content and how do I manage it? Why do I need a retention schedule? How do I manage email and other electronic information? These are just some of the many questions that are asked of records professionals on a regular basis. Come and hear our speaker go over the basics of records and information management. If you are already familiar with the basics, come and get a refresher that will help you explain the concepts to others and increase your support.
