The UNPOs Common Services Working Group for Archives and Records Management [WGARM] is composed of individuals who were initially recommended by their organizations [or were later added by WGARM] because of their expressed interest, knowledge or experience in ARM or related areas.
To encourage continuity and access to wide experience we have
encouraged "alternates" and "observers" participation. A
working definition of the three terms is provided below:
- Representative: takes
attending meetings, keeping related alternates, observers or colleagues
informed and suggesting items for agenda.
required data and comments on WGARM drafts from IT and other colleagues in
their own organization and
their UNPO senior staff who serve as representative to the Common Services
Task Force informed of WGARM projects or proposals especially before CSTF
meetings which have WGARM on the agenda.
- Alternate: attends meetings whenever possible and
especially if representative will not be present or the agenda includes an
item for which they may have special expertise and experience to share.
- Observer is welcome to attend at any time and offer items
Based on the
annual agreed priorities, a WGARM representative or alternate might serve as a
coordinator or manager of some part of the current or future years projects. This could
involve following up on technical issues and reporting back to WGARM or
chair or arranging for demonstration of a product or service of interest
to some WGARM members etc..
We can provide new
members a list of previous documents submitted to the Common Services Task
Force; recent "in- progress" documents and items being discussed -
as well as WGARM draft material they may find helpful. see also http://www.wgarm.net
