Apply to attend the Leadership Institute for Administrators of State Archives, Records Management, and Information Management Programs to be held in College Park, Maryland, on May 6-8, 2002. The Institute is sponsored by the University of Maryland’s College of Information Studies and the National Archives and Records Administration with support from IBM, which is very generously hosting one day of the meeting at its Institute for Electronic Government in Washington, DC.
The Institute is intended primarily for the directors of state archival and records management programs and for people in those programs who have management responsibilities. It is designed to address the leadership and management challenges faced by the administrators – current and future – of these programs. The Institute’s program is varied and includes coverage of program management in government, the evolution of electronic government and its impact on archives and records programs, and the management of electronic records, perhaps the greatest single challenge faced by government records programs today.
The Institute is limited to approximately 25 participants, so admission will be limited to qualified applicants. Applying is easy - all that is needed is a short e-mail describing your program management responsibilities, career interests and objectives, and plans for applying the insights from the Institute in your work. You must apply by March 1 to be considered. We will notify successful applicants by March 20.
The College of Information Studies, NARA, and IBM are contributing their time and efforts for free. However, a registration fee of $125 will be charged to cover other Institute costs, including course materials, lunches, and bus transportation to and from meeting facilities. Participants will be responsible for their own transportation to College Park as well as their own room and board; we have reserved a block of rooms at a hotel near the campus at the rate of $84 (plus tax) per night, including breakfast.
Please send a short e-mail application (two pages max) by March 1 with your name, title, program, address, phone number, and e-mail address and addressing the three criteria noted above, to the Institute Coordinator.
