The Operations and Training Advisory Committee (OTAC) supports the day-to-day duties and responsibilities of records officers in state and local governments through development of special projects, guidelines, regular training and addressing challenges related to emerging technology. The Committee is charged with organizing professional records management training which could include a statewide conference or webinars. The committee should explore working with other established organizations and partners to provide training. The committee should provide a forum for records officers to help identify and address records management challenges and issues. At every meeting, the Committee will receive a report from the Records Center Section Chief on topics including records inventory, RDAs which have sunset and progress of work on other projects, including forms and general schedule updates. The Committee members will serve three-year staggered terms. The members are appointed by the Public Records Board after collaborating with the entity the member represents. The Advisory Committee Chair will meet at least annually with the Policy and Governance Committee to set direction and priorities for the Advisory Committee’s work and to collaborate on records management standards and best practice plans.
Committee Chair: Julie Laundrie
