Electronic Records Readiness:
Meeting the Deadlines of M-19-21

On December 5, 2019, we held the kick-off event for our Live! Educational Seminars in Washington, DC. It explored the challenges and opportunities that come with the government’s push to paperless records management. More than 100 attendees heard firsthand from leaders in records management compliance who covered a wide range of topics from NARA’s road map for M-19-21 implementation to records management regulations to resource requirements, digital modernization, and more.
