Federal agencies must shift fully to electronic records management by December 2022, when the National Archives and Records Administration will stop accepting new paper records.

Successfully making that transition entails far more than simply digitizing existing documents. Meeting the goals set by M-19-21 demands changes to current business processes, dramatically different approaches to content classification, new systems that are digital throughout, and records management professionals who are far more strategic and empowered in their roles. It’s a foundational modernization effort needs to be treated as such.

Many of the initiatives underway suggest agencies are doing exactly that, and re-imagining what true electronic records readiness can mean for critical missions. Yet budget constraints, competing IT priorities and even organizational cultures can complicate these already-challenging efforts.

Please join us for this FCW Workshop exploring the challenges and opportunities that come with government's push to paperless records management, and the practical steps agencies can take to successfully meet the requirements of M-19-21.

Attendees who take part in this half-day virtual event will be able to:

  • Identify gaps in existing records management systems
  • Develop and implement tactics for addressing those gaps
  • Map agency modernization plans to key M-19-21 milestones
  • Convey the mission impact of electronic records management to others
  • Work more efficiently with industry to maximize technology investments
  • More effectively support their SAORM and ensure senior executive buy-in
  • Better leverage the guidance and assistance available from NARA
