LGRS Annual Section Meeting Recap

This page provides links and information from the Local Government Records Section annual meeting, held on August 14, 2020. The meeting was recorded and an announcement will be made when the recording is available.

  • Attached to this page:
    •  PowerPoints or supplemental documents from the 3 panelists: Courtney Bailey (State Archives of North Carolina), Dave Joens (Illinois State Archives), Mike Saunders (Washington State Archives)
  • During the meeting we also briefly discussed the collaborative Local Government Archives Directory Project. This project was started by John Slate, City Archivist, Dallas Municipal Archives, and Dave Evans, Corporate Archivist/Records Analyst for the Liquor Control Board of Ontario, in response to "a need for direct action to assist and encourage local government archives and government archives in non-government repositories." It compiles information on municipal archives from every town/county/village, city, and state in the U.S. and provinces in Canada.

They are looking for a few volunteers to help round out the project.  For more information on how to get involved, click on the link below:
