What is it like to archive an entire president’s administration, from desk drawer papers to Snapchat photos, and the next day begin logging Inauguration Day data files? In March, you can ask the Director of the White House Office of Records Management how they do it! Please join us in welcoming the Director of the White House Office of Records Management, Philip Droepe, from Washington, DC, as he describes the unique challenges of managing presidential records. Imagine the experiences Philip will share from his over 27 years in the White House, including; working with the White House staff, obligations under the Presidential Records Act, how changes are handled during the Presidential transitions, and more!
This lunch event will be hosted in Madison, and we will be announcing the meeting location soon. Registration is open, so reserve your seat now.
