ALGIM are local government’s information management specialists, and we want to ensure that our members (all the Councils of New Zealand) have the tools and knowledge they need to carry out their function as an Executive Sponsor under the Public Records Act.

ALGIM has designed this 1 hour webinar hosted by ALGIM’s expert speaker, Kerri Siatiras to give you a briefing on what you need to know about being an Executive Sponsor. As an Executive Sponsor under the Public Records Act 2005 (PRA), it’s crucial that you understand the implications for your role and your organisation.

Over the course of this webinar, Kerri will take you through the finer points of the PRA and your role as the nominated Executive Sponsor for your organisation, covering many important topics, such as:

  • An overview of the PRA, and what you as sponsor needs to know
  • The purpose of having an Executive Sponsor
  • The requirements and responsibilities of an Executive Sponsor
  • How to meet these requirements in a practical way
  • What you should ensure is occurring within your organisation
  • What accountabilities there are to Archives NZ
  • Introduction to the Information and Records Management Standard for Senior Managers
  • The dilemma of digital preservation that all Local Authorities will face

    There will also be plenty of time for a Q&A at the end. Make sure you have your council covered – join us for this webinar and get a real understanding of what it means to be an effective Executive Sponsor.
