Dear Jennifer;

This message is to ask for your help in alerting tribal records managers of an important series of FREE online workshops regarding identifying and protecting essential government records.  Registration is available at http://tribalrecords.eventbrite.com

The course, Intergovernmental Preparedness for Essential Records, is part of a national training program for state and local governments.  It is funded through a $2.6 million training grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and organized by members of the Council of State Archivists.  The tribal records workshops are sponsored by the Association of Tribal Archives, Libraries, and Museums, with support from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, the Oklahoma Department of Libraries, and the Western Council of State Libraries.

The entire course is 12 hours in length, with Webinars offered in 90-minute segments every Wednesday in January and February at 2 pm CST.  Participants are expected to complete assignments between Webinars to apply what they learn directly to their work.  Extensive materials accompany the workshops.

There are three phases of the training:

Introduction to Records and Information Management<http://www.eventbrite.com/rim/index.htm>.
(Must be completed before January 1, 2011)
This 90-minute narrated presentation is available online, free of charge. It focuses on the practices fundamental to the efficient and economical operations of any government agency. When disasters strike, state and local governments with effective records and information management programs are more likely to be able to access essential records and resume critical business operations quickly.
