Exploring the Essence of Records  Management 
Engaging with Experts

St James Park, Newcastle upon  Tyne

4 - 5 May  2006

Final programme with  all speakers 
This  unique event for anyone interested or involved in managing records 
provides the opportunity  to join a group of experts in  records management, risk 
management, IT, information systems and law, from the UK and abroad, as  they 
engage in the exploration and critical examination of three key  issues: 
·         Embedding  records management into business processes 
·         Is  records management the management of risk? 
·         Who  are the records managers? 
If you are serious about  moving records management into the digital age this 
is an event not to be  missed. Contribute your own knowledge and experience 
to the debate as we  discuss: 
·         the  essence of records management and recordkeeping in today's 
dynamic electronic  corporate and public sector environment 
·         the  issues faced by practitioners, academics and recordkeepers

and  people
