Implementing a Records Retention Program
|Date / Time:
Everyone knows that companies are "supposed" to have records retention programs, but how many companies actually follow their programs? What good is a policy that sits on a shelf with the documents it's supposed to govern?
Your organization's interests don't start, or end, with figuring out how long you're supposed to keep your tax returns. Learn how to implement a records management program that actually works.
The goal is not to tell you how long you should keep any specific document, but to help you explain to your stakeholders why they should care about keeping or destroying records in the first place.
Learn practical tips for building organizational support at every stage of your records management program: development, rollout and maintenance.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
