The California State Archives and the California Department of General
Services are offering training on essential records during March of this
year. Beginning on March 6, 2012, a four-session webinar will be offered
on consecutive Tuesdays from 1:00-2:30 (March 6th, 13th, 20th, and
27th). This training is offered free of charge.

The Essential Records course teaches participants to:
*	identify and prioritize critical business needs and records;
*	assess risks to their records and identify protection
*	outline an essential records plan; and
*	understand applicable federal, state, and local COOP regulations
and procedures.

The course is approved and certified by FEMA and is recommended for

International Institute of Municipal Clerks (IIMC) will grant one
Certified Municipal Clerk (CMC) Experience point or one Master Municipal
Clerk (MMC) Advanced Education point for each course.  The webinar also
counts toward the Local Government Archives and Records Administration
Certificate offered by the National Association of Government Archives
and Records Administrators (NAGARA).
