We invite CEOs, trustees, records managers and other senior staff to join foundation leaders and seasoned experts in an intimate discussion on recent work and innovations in preserving foundation records, particularly as organizations begin the transition from solely paper-based archives to digitized and born-digital archives. Topics will range from positioning this function within your organization; to developing robust information management practices across your organization; to exciting ways to leverage technology to capture, describe, preserve and access archival materials. Join us to learn more about these and other key archival management issues facing foundations that our panelists and attendees will explore.

  • The basic expertise and resources needed to staff an archival function large or small
  • Ideas on how to promote this function internally
  • Various archival services to support in-house functions
  • How two foundations are moving forward in their efforts
  • How to better assess the current state of your archives
