Guidelines For Managing Records of the Annual Conference and Local Church
This manual is for local church history and records committees and for the annual conference commission on archives and history, because these are the groups responsible for the creation of arecords management program for the local church and annual conference. This manual is also for the local church historian and the conference archivist; often the ones who must implement these plansand perhaps even assist in designing them.
This is a manual of examples and ideas. It is not meant to provide an exhaustive or comprehensive records management plan; that only can be done at the local level. The intention is to provide enough material and ideas, and some examples, to assist in starting a records management program for the your local church or annual conference. Some of the ideas mentioned here can be used directly in a local program, while others just offer a place to begin.
