Managing Records of the Annual Conference and Local Church
The General Commission on Archives and History makes these guidelines available to facilitate the planning and creation of retention schedules for your annual conference and the local church. They are available in two versions: pdf for formatted viewing and printing online and as an MS Word document. Both versions can be downloaded and printed out. To read the pdf version you will need Adobe's Acrobat Reader version 5 or later. If you don't have it you can download it for free at www.adobe.com.
In addition, we are now offering basic guidelines for managing and preserving electronic records. This is still a developing area. The guidelines are meant to offer some information on the basic management of your electronic records while offering some thoughts for the long-term preservation of the same. And remember recommendations in the Records Guidelines apply to all records regardless of format.
