MAHLAP Forum on Sept. 12, 2008 at the Manila International Book Fair

Dear Colleagues:

In celebration of the 29th Manila International Book Fair, the Medical and Health Librarian’s Association of the Philippines (MAHLAP) cordially invites you to a forum entitled “Principles and Trends of Managing Records towards Digitization”.

It will be held on September 12, 2008, 8:30 -10:30 AM at the 2nd floor room no. 4, SMX Convention Center, Sea Shell Drive, Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City. We invited Ms. Gensela Lacambacal, Head of Medical Records Division from the Philippine General Hospital as our resource speaker and Ms. Emma Rey, Executive Director of Legislative Library and Archives from the House of Representatives as our forum reactor.

This forum aims to share the knowledge and skills necessary to maintain effective programs on records management improvement. It will help us gain understanding on how to regulate the recording, classification and indexing of active records, improve methods of managing the files, and systematize retention and disposal of records, adoption of logical systems of converting documents and computerizing records management procedures. At the end, the participants would learn the framework to be actually involved in initiating standard records management procedures in their own concerned agencies/ institutions.

The forum fee is P150 for members, P200 for non-members and P75 for students that includes a Certificate of Attendance.

Please confirm your attendance by sending back attached form to any of our officers.

We look forward to seeing you in this exciting and informative event.

Mr. Gilbert D. Santos
